Also, let me remind you and others that R News is also peer reviewed (although not yet indexed).
It specifically includes solicits short to medium length articles of the following kinds

Lengthier papers are probably better placed in the JSS, JCGS (J.Computational and Graphical Statistics), or CSDA (Computational Statistics and Data Analysis), depending on contents. For in-depth descriptions of packages, JSS has become quite popular in recent years
