R 3.5.3 now available

March 12, 2019

(This article was first published on Revolutions, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

The R Core Team announced yesterday the release of R 3.5.3, and updated binaries for Windows and Linux are now available (with Mac sure to follow soon). This update fixes three minor bugs (to the functions writeLines, setClassUnion, and stopifnot), but you might want to upgrade just to avoid the "package built under R 3.5.4" warnings you might get for new CRAN packages in the future.

R releases typically reference the Peanuts cartoon, but the code-name for this release, "Great Truth", is somewhat of a mystery. There may be a clue in the release date, March 11. Anyone got any ideas?

For more details on this latest update to the R language, check out the announcement below. And as always, thanks to the members of the R Core Team for their contributions to all R users with the R project.
