July 31 2018: R 3.5.1 ready

The newest version of R, 3.5.1, is ready and usable with the path /s/pkg/linux64/R/3.5.1/bin/R. After some testing, we will make this the new default, in a few weeks.

Some packages have dropped maintenance since the last update:

  • deal - very old
  • msgl
  • ncdf - replaced with ncdf4 package, which is now installed
  • ReporteRs
  • epicalc

If you need a particular replacement package for one of these, please let us know.
