Hi

New versions of the grid and lattice packages will be available with the
release of R 1.4 (in a couple of days):

    grid_0.5
    lattice_0.3-1

These packages will no longer be in the "development" directory (i.e., they
will be in CRAN/src/contrib).

The changes in this release are mostly to grid, with lattice modified just
to take account of those changes.

Some important points about the grid changes are ...

(i) grid_0.5 will only work with R version 1.4 or later.

(ii) The main new features are support for clipping to viewports and
support for multiple devices. See the file grid/doc/changes_0.5.txt for
other changes.

(iii) There is a known bug on Windows; turning on plot history recording
while producing grid graphics will crash R. Adding individual plots to the
plot history seems to work ok.

(iv) Some things still missing are: vector fonts, mathematical annotation,
compatibility with base graphics, and many helpful suggestions from users
that I still haven't found time to get to! :)
