Fedora 9 Update: R-2.8.1-8.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-3168
2009-03-30 16:51:58
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : R
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.8.1
Release     : 8.fc9
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:

Fix error in new R.sh and R.csh profile scripts where R could throw an error to
stdout if R_HOME was already defined. On tcsh, this could prevent a user from
being able to login.
