In addition, please let me note that one of the very oldest "website"s for R *developement* has been

http://stat.ethz.ch/R-manual/ (used to be called "R-alpha")

it contains manuals of both "R patched" and "R manual" *and* direct links to the "NEWS" of both.

One reason, I have not advertized this very long-living (and daily updated) web page is that it's really about *NON RELEASED* versions of R.
