December 11, 2015

Yesterday, the R Core Team released a new update to R (version 3.2.3, codenamed "Wooden Christmas Tree"), and the source distribution is now available for download on CRAN. Binary versions for Windows, Mac and Linux are also available for download from your local CRAN mirror.

This release makes a few small improvements and bug fixes to R, including:

  • Improved support on Windows for time zones, OS version identification, FTP connections, and printing (in the GUI). 
  • Performance improvements and more support for long vectors in some functions including which.max
  • Improved accuracy for the Chi-Square distribution functions in some extreme cases

(See the NEWS file for the complete list of updates.) As a minor update to R, this release maintains compatibility with existing R scripts and packages, so it's worth upgrading when you can. The next update to Revolution R Open — featuring R 3.2.3 — is being prepared now, and will be available for download in mid-January.
