Update Information:

This version brings a number of small changes all over the place. Perhaps most
importantly, support was added for the new dynamic help system in R 2.10.0 (also
released, today). Apart from that, the toolbars are now configurable, plugin
dialogs do not stick around, a plugin was added for Stata import (by Michael
Ash), a number of bugs was fixed, and many more small things as detailed, below:
The changes in detail:  * New features / improvements  - Add Stata data file
import plugin (by Michael Ash)  - Plugin dialogs close automatically after
submitting (by default)  - Fetching object structure is much faster for very
large data.frames  - "Analysis" menu was restructured, slightly  - On plugin
help pages, display a link to invoke the plugin  - Double-clicking an item in
the workspace browser now opens an object viewer, or (if possible) editor  -
Safeguard against removal of essential packages via the GUI  - Add context menu
action to unload packages in the workspace browser window  - Add shortcut to the
load / unload packages dialog also in the workspace menu and the workspace
browser context menu  - Make toolbar buttons configurable  * Fixes and
corrections  - Add support for the dynamic help server introduced in R 2.10.0  -
Assorted minor fixes and improvements to several plugins  - Fix deadlock while
handling some Tcl events  - Fix crash when loading certain packages on Windows
- Fix some potential path issues on Windows  - Fixed: Console window would
sometimes remain in partially active state after piping commands  * Internal
changes  - Tolerate missing libraries in testing framework  - Debug output
(previously sent to stderr) is now written to a temporary file  - All directly
accessible plugins now have at least one automated test
