Subject: R-alpha: Subject: New Version and New Mailing List

This weeks version, R-0.3alpha is now available as both a tar archive
(optionally gzipped) or as patches against R-0.2alpha from

	stat.auckland.ac.nz [/pub/alpha]

This version fixes many small problems.  In addition, versions of
call_S and R_alloc S_alloc are in place so that C code can now make
calls to R.  There is a short demo in demos/dynload which illustrates
the process.  This code has not been exercised to any great extent so
there may be problems.  An initial version of args() is in place.

We are currently working on including the Adobe Font Metrics in
the postscript graphics driver.  This should make things like axis
labelling much nicer and enable us to produce a nice versions of
"legend".  We are also cleaning up args() and related functions.
The functions "persp" and "contour" are on the drawing boards.

Because of time pressure (its Friday and I need a beer) the core
language library is still named "core".  This will change to "base" in
the next release.  C entry points for call_R and S_alloc were not
included for similar reasons.

As you can observe from the header this mailing list has now moved to

	r-testers@stat.math.ethz.ch
