Fedora Update Notification

Name        : R
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.9.2
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.r-project.org
Summary     : A language for data analysis and graphics
Description :
This is a metapackage that provides both core R userspace and
all R development components.

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was developed at
Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a wide
variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...).

R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be linked
and called at run time.

Update Information:

Update to R 2.9.2 (and corresponding rpy rebuilds).    BUG FIXES    - parse_Rd()
still did not handle source reference encodings  properly.    - The C utility
function PrintValue no longer attempts to print  attributes for CHARSXPs as
those attributes are used internally for the CHARSXP cache.  This fixes a
segfault when calling it on a CHARSXP from C code.    - PDF graphics output was
producing two instances of anything  drawn with the symbol font face. (Report
from Baptiste Auguie.)    - length(x) <- newval and grep() could cause memory
corruption.  (PR#13837)    - If model.matrix() was given too large a model, it
could crash  R. (PR#13838, fix found by Olaf Mersmann.)    - gzcon() (used by
load()) would re-open an open connection,  leaking a file descriptor each time.
(PR#13841)    - The checks for inconsistent inheritance reported by setClass()
now detect inconsistent superclasses and give better warning  messages.    -
print.anova() failed to recognize the column labelled P(>|Chi|) from a
Poisson/binomial GLM anova as a p-value column in order to format it
appropriately (and as a consequence it gave no significance stars).    - A
missing PROTECT caused rare segfaults during calls to load().  (PR#13880, fix
found by Bill Dunlap.)    - gsub() in a non-UTF-8 locale with a marked UTF-8
input could in rare circumstances overrun a buffer and so segfault.    - R CMD
Rdconv --version was not working correctly.    - Missing PROTECTs in nlm()
caused "random" errors. (PR#13381 by  Adam D.I. Kramer, analysis and suggested
fix by Bill Dunlap.)    - Some extreme cases of pbeta(log.p = TRUE) are more
accurate  (finite values < -700 rather than -Inf).  (PR#13786)    - pbeta() now
reports on more cases where the asymptotic  expansions lose accuracy (the
underlying TOMS708 C code was  ignoring some of these, including the PR#13786
example).    - new.env(hash = TRUE, size = NA) now works the way it has been
documented to for a long time.    - tcltk::tk_choose.files(multi = TRUE)
produces better-formatted  output with filenames containing spaces.  (PR#13875)
- R CMD check --use-valgrind did not run valgrind on the package tests.    - The
tclvalue() and the print() and as.xxx methods for class  "tclObj" crashed R with
an invalid object -- seen with an  object saved from an earlier session.    - R
CMD BATCH garbled options -d <debugger> (useful for valgrind, although
--debugger=valgrind always worked)    - INSTALL with LazyData and Encoding
declared in DESCRIPTION  might have left options("encoding") set for the rest of
the  package installation.
