I think Bioconductor packages have not been able to read the newer Affy file
formats (for good reasons explained in a post by Rafael I.). But I just got an
e-mail from Affy saying that they are making a library available under LGPL (see
below). So, just in case anyone who should know does not already know...

  We are pleased to announce the release of C++ source code for the parsing of
Affymetrix CEL, CHP, CDF, BAR and BPMAP files. This souce code is being provided
