We are now starting testing R 2.13.0/alpba/beta/RC and testing and 
feedback would be appreciated (whereas reports on problems immediately 
after release will try our patience).

Sources are available at
Windows binaries at
and Mac binaries at http://r.research.att.com/, specifically
(and it is best to use the CRAN master rather than mirrors which will 
lag behind).

Please report (success as well as failure except on the most common 
platforms) here, R-windows at r-project.org or R-sig-mac at r-project.org. 
We probably have good coverage of Debian/Fedora i686/x86_64 Linux, Mac 
OS X, Windows, Solaris and x86_64 FreeBSD 8.2: reports on other 
platforms would be particularly welcome.

There have been a number of confused postings about 64-bit R on 
Solaris: the R-admin manual in this version contains detailed 
instructions on what works for us (Solaris Studio 12.2 and 12u1, and 
gcc4 on Sparc) and what doesn't (gcc on amd64) and why.

Package maintainers should review the results for their packages at
and submit updates if needed as soon as possible and definitely well 
before April 13.  That page is in the process of migration to 
R-prerel: for now the most useful columns are r-devel (Fedora), 
r-devel (Windows, really R-prerel) and the Solaris x86 column.
