Fedora Update Notification

Name        : R
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 2.6.2
Release     : 1.fc8.1
URL         : http://www.r-project.org
Summary     : A language for data analysis and graphics
Description :
A language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was developed at
Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a wide
variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...).

R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be linked
and called at run time.
