I keep my local bib file and up to now I had entry

    title = {R: A Language and Environment for Statistical Computing},     author = {{R Development Core Team}},     organization = {R Foundation for Statistical Computing},     address = {Vienna, Austria},
    year = {2005},
    note = {{ISBN} 3-900051-00-3},
    url = {http://www.R-project.org},

With recent versions ISBN changed to 3-900051-07-0. Now I wonder if there is any canonical way to refer to R without the need to change R entry over and over. It would probably be the best just to add new entry for "new version" for R. Now the question is what is new version or when does ISBN number change?


Lep pozdrav / With regards,
