R 3.3.1 (codename “Bug in Your Hair”) was released yesterday You can get the latest binaries version from here. (or the .tar.gz source code from here). The full list of bug fixes is provided below
new features and (this release does not introduce new features).
Upgrading to R 3.3.1 on Windows
If you are using Windows you can easily upgrade to the latest version of R using the installr package. Simply run the following code in Rgui:
install.packages("installr") # install setInternet2(TRUE) # only for R versions older than 3.3.0 installr::updateR() # updating R.
Running “updateR()” will detect if there is a new R version available, and if so it will download+install it (etc.). There is also a step by step tutorial (with screenshots) on how to upgrade R on Windows, using the installr package. If you only see the option to upgrade to an older version of R, then change your mirror or try again in a few hours (it usually take around 24 hours for all CRAN mirrors to get the latest version of R).
