I believe so: Since the release, a few bug fixes have gone into the
simpleaffy package.  It seems that a mistake was made on our end
during the latest update and the package was rebuilt with the wrong
version of R.  We will correct this *today* and repost.

Thanks for the report and sorry for the inconvenience.
