R

David Smith alerts us that R Tools for Visual Studio Release Candidate 1 is available:

We’ll cover the features in detail with the general availability release of RTVS 1.0, but in summary the new features include:

  • Remote Execution: type R code in your local RTVS instance, but have the computations performed on a remote R server. You can also switch between local and remote workspaces at will.

  • Enhanced R Graphics Support: multiple floating and dockable¬†plot windows, each with plot history.

I’ve been using RTVS more frequently lately and it’s definitely growing on me.
