I've just put up R-0.61.3.tgz and R-0.61.2-0.61.3.diff.gz for
anonymous FTP on ftp.stat.auckland.ac.nz. 

As usual: Don't get it from there unless you are in a desperate hurry.
It will migrate to the CRAN sites within a day or two. (See the FAQ
for the list of CRAN sites. And see the footer for the FAQ location....)

This release mainly fixes a couple of embarassing bugs in 0.61.2. It
is expected to be the last of the 0.61.x series (unless something
*really* ghastly is discovered), 0.62.0 being scheduled for release
some time in mid-June.

Here is the list of changes:

                CHANGES IN R VERSION 0.61.3


    o   find(.) function [on wish of many...]


    o   Remove "Alpha" revision from opening blurb. Didn't make sense
        with our development model

    o   set SHELL=/bin/sh in Makefile and use $(MAKE). Avoid use of 
        wildcards in $(MANSRC) for non-gnu "make" (notably Solaris).

    o   rhyper gave wrong results in degenerate cases

    o   Using get with pos=length(search()) or envir=NULL was
        actually actually starting the search in .GlobalEnv.

    o   first=0 (or negative) argument to substr() caused trouble.

    o   1%o%1 would segfault

    o   .Dyn.libs would linger in .RData causing code not to be dyn.loaded.
        Now removed in .First(), if necessary

    o   system.time() expression could not access local variables in
