Fedora Update Notification
2011-03-02 01:28:29

Name        : rpy
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 2.0.8
Release     : 7.fc13
URL         : http://rpy.sourceforge.net
Summary     : Python interface to the R language
Description :
RPy provides a robust Python interface to the R
programming language.  It can manage all kinds of R objects and can
execute arbitrary R functions. All the errors from the R language are
converted to Python exceptions.

Update Information:

Update to R 2.12.2. A full list of changes in this release is here: http://cran.r-project.org/src/base/NEWS

Notably, it fixes this issue:

Complex arithmetic (notably z^n for complex z and integer n) gave
incorrect results since R 2.10.0 on platforms without C99 complex
support. This and some lesser issues in trignometric functions
have been corrected. Such platforms were rare (we know of Cygwin and FreeBSD). However, because of new compiler optimizations in the way complex arguments are handled, the same code was selected on x86_64 Linux with gcc 4.5.x at the default -O2 optimization (but not at -O).

In addition, rpy and rkward were rebuilt to use the new R. No other changes were made to these packages.
