Members of R-devel may be interested in the special Sept. 2000 issue
of J. of Comp. and Graph. Statist.
on Systems and Languages.  It features two articles by Robert
Gentleman and Ross Ihaka on "Java and Dylan" and "Lexical Scope and
Statistical Computing", an article by Paul Murrell and Ross Ihaka on
"An Approach to Providing Mathematical Annotation on Plots", an
article by John Chambers on "Users, Programmers, and Statistical
Software", an article by Duncan Temple Lang on "The Omegahat
Environment", an article by Luke Tierney on "Connecting Lisp-Stat to
COM", and an article co-authored by Thomas Lumley on "Orca: A
Visualization Toolkit for High-Dimensional Data".

All of the authors mentioned above are members of R-core.  Some of
these articles deal directly with R - for example, Gentleman and Ihaka
on lexical scoping should be of interest to anyone doing advanced R
development.  Other articles describe some related interests of R-core

This is one of the few issues of an academic journal that I will read
cover-to-cover.  There's lots of good material in there.
