Hello Uwe.

Thanks for the response. I was searching in bug repository for something else and found that wish. Hoewever I tried to do a search for that, so I would not bother R-devel team. I was not successfull in finding any meaningfull comments on legend in

http://developer.r-project.org/R.svnlog.2005

You are right with NEWS file in R-devel. It really documents this improvement. Very nice. You guys really do an excellent job. I did not looked in NEWS file since it is kind of "hidden" i.e. one needs to download the R-devel and look in that file. But I confes, it is my blame, not of R-devel folk. However I think, that it would be nice that link to NEWS file would be accessible directly from R websites. I wrote few lines of HTML code that could be added to CRAN webpages for this. I hope r-team or CRAN maintainers will find this usefull.

Look files:
