Subject: R-alpha: Version 0.7

A new version of R source is now available in



with patches upgrading from 0.6 to 0.7 in


The major change is the fix to the saving and restoring of data.
>From the CHANGES file.

1.  A problem with saving and restoring data sets (and entire sessions)
    has now been fixed.  Unfortunately this has (yet again) required
    making previously saved sessions non-restorable.  Make sure that
    you extract any data you want to use from saved sessions before you
    move to 0.7.  Hopefully this won't happen again (no promises).

2.  A new do.call() function providing compatibility with S.

3.  X11r[1-5] compatibility finally(?) attained.

4.  A problem with subsetting data frames fixed.

5.  Lots of small bug fixes
