[Rd] Testing window for R 2.13.0

We are now starting testing R 2.13.0/alpba/beta/RC and testing and feedback would be appreciated (whereas reports on problems immediately after release will try our patience).

Sources are available at
http://cran.r-project.org/src/base-prerelease/ Windows binaries at

and Mac binaries at http://r.research.att.com/, specifically
(and it is best to use the CRAN master rather than mirrors which will lag behind).

Please report (success as well as failure except on the most common platforms) here, R-windows_at_r-project.org or R-sig-mac_at_r-project.org. We probably have good coverage of Debian/Fedora i686/x86_64 Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, Solaris and x86_64 FreeBSD 8.2: reports on other platforms would be particularly welcome.

There have been a number of confused postings about 64-bit R on Solaris: the R-admin manual in this version contains detailed instructions on what works for us (Solaris Studio 12.2 and 12u1, and gcc4 on Sparc) and what doesn't (gcc on amd64) and why.

Package maintainers should review the results for their packages at http://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_summary.html and submit updates if needed as soon as possible and definitely well before April 13. That page is in the process of migration to R-prerel: for now the most useful columns are r-devel (Fedora), r-devel (Windows, really R-prerel) and the Solaris x86 column.
