Microsoft R Open 3.5.0 Released

David Smith announces that Microsoft R Open 3.5.0 is now available:

Microsoft R Open 3.5.0 is now available for download for Windows, Mac and Linux. This update includes the open-source R 3.5.0 engine, which is a major update with many new capabilities and improvements to R. In particular, it includes a major new framework for handling data in R, with some major behind-the-scenes performance and memory-use benefits (and with further improvements expected in the future).

Microsoft R Open 3.5.0 points to a fixed CRAN snapshot taken on June 1 2018. This provides a reproducible experience when installing CRAN packages by default, but you always change the default CRAN repository or the built-in checkpoint package to access snapshots of packages from an earlier or later date.

It’s nice to see Microsoft keeping pace with R changes; they look like they’re averaging about 6-8 weeks from an R point release to an MRO release.
