I admire package-builders being proactive and having their facilities ready for upcoming R releases. However, if the publicly released version of R is 2.10.1 and a package is built for R 2.11.0, users get the embarrassing notice about a disconnect, and cannot do much about it.

If it is tedious to roll out a new package on time, perhaps there's a possibility for automation here.

Thanks. I encountered this yesterday with RHmm. I'm running R on WinXP.

Happy R user!
