Dear Windows / WinEdt users!

A new version of the "R-WinEdt package" is available now.
(I know, Prof Brian D Ripley is not "... [enthusiastic] using it
[WinEdt] with an Open Source project.")

There are a few important improvements (and some bugfixes).

If you are interested, have a look at:
(or in a few days on CRAN, I suppose).

- Windows 32bit
- R-1.0.0 or later (one feature depends on R-1.1.0, in development)
- WinEdt 5 (build 20000415 or later)

Feel free to send bug reports, comments and feature requests.

Important part of the ReadMe:


  - Syntax-Highlighting  (and highlighted printing)
    (function index of all packages available at CRAN 
     /bin/windows/windows-NT/contrib/ ,
     last update: 05.03.2000, R-1.0.0).

  - Many R functions at the same time in the same editor.

  - Buttons / Shortcuts for simple access (one click) to:

	- Save document and source(.) into R.

	- Paste selected code from WinEdt directly to R 
          (e.g. from history)

	- Open (and update) .Rhistory (so you can reuse your last commands).
          (Only works with rw1010 (R-1.1.0, in development) or later!)

  - Templates, e.g.: for(_ in _){_}

  - Faster starting than with standard configuration (of WinEdt).

  - Features of WinEdt 
    (e.g. Delimiter Check, advanced searching, bookmarks, macros, ...).

  - Independent of another WinEdt running with "LaTeX-configuration".
