After so many questions and a considerable delay (almost entirely my fault), the BRugs package version 0.7-4 has been released yesterday. The BRugs package is available from CRAN master already as source and in binary form for Windows and will be synced by the mirrors shortly.

Note the following changes (more details in the NEWS file):

BRugs works on Linux now

BRugs now supports 64-bit R on Windows

BRugs works with an existing installation of OpenBUGS (at least 3.2.1) instead of being distributed with the OpenBUGS library, hence the OpenBUGS installation is a requirement.

Both the Linux version as well as the 64-bit version for 64-bit R on Windows are typically slower than the more native interface used for 32-bit R on Windows.

Thanks to all who helped to get so far. Special thanks to Chris Jackson for many improvement and all his work to build the Linux part of the interface.
