Hi, your question is nearly impossible to answer without actual testing of your existing pipelines. But from my soon 20-year usage of R, it's clear to me that the R Core Team strives to keep things backward compatible as far as they can. The NEWS file:
https://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/r-devel/NEWS.html contains useful information on what's been updated in each release - you can inspect that one from your own perspective. There are also 12,000 packages on CRAN that are tested on old-release, current release, and developers version of R. Many of these packages rarely gets updated, which indicates that these package work across a large number of R versions (and platforms). FYI, R 3.5.0 is being released on April 23, 2018. You should aim to install that version. Also, on Linux it's not too hard to install multiple R versions in parallel when you install from source. Then you can go back and forth between version whenever you'd like. /Henrik On Wed, Apr 11, 2018 at 8:31 AM, Marcos Fiorini <marcosfm...@hotmail.com> wrote: > Hi everyone. > > I need an information about compatibility of R and Suse Linux.
