This is a bit of a rushed release and I will be out of town for a week, so you may want to keep your old sources ... Enjoy. Ross >From the CHANGES file: CHANGES IN VERSION R VERSION 0.10 ALPHA 1. The major change is that the base distribution of R no longer contains any fortran code. We have done a complete translation of Linpack into C, so all that functionality is still available. Eispack is a little more problematic, but some selected routines are available. We may adopt some functionality from Lapack. 2. A number of incompatibilties with S have been uncovered in the process of porting the Survival3 package. Some (all?) of these have now been fixed. The major thing that users will notice is that partial matching for extracting named list elements is now done in the approved S way. 3. lm will now handle the model specification y~1. 4. A set of regression Belsley, Kuh and Welsch style regression diagnostics has been implemented. See lm.influence for details. NOTE: Our lm.influence is not identical to the S one! Our one returns the change in coefficients b(i)-b rather than the coefficients b(i). 5. Basic non-linear optimization facilities are now in place. These are based on a subset of the routines described in Dennis and Schnabel. A more complete implementation is in the works. 6. There is now an implementation of read.table. See the manual entry for details. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- r-testers mailing list -- To (un)subscribe, send subscribe or unsubscribe (in the "body", not the subject !)
