I've put up at


a (15Mb) `release candidate' of rw1030.  It's a snapshot of the complete
release but not everything (especially the recommended packages) is in
final form.

I would particularly be interested in feedback on two points:

1) The claim is that utilities like Rcmd check now work on 16-bit versions
of Windows.  Certainly with the latest perl (626) I was able to do all I
tested, including installing and checking bundles, on Windows 98.

2) There are inbuilt capabilities to download files (and more), and
update.packages() can be run from a menu.  Does this work on old low-end
systems?  If not, does the alternative given in CHANGES work?

Also on anything else ... we will be doing more checking before release.
