Name        : rkward
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.5.4
Release     : 4.fc15
URL         : http://rkward.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Graphical frontend for R language
Description :
RKWard aims to provide an easily extensible, easy to use IDE/GUI for the
R-project. RKWard tries to combine the power of the R-language with the
(relative) ease of use of commercial statistics tools. Long term plans
include integration with office suites

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.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update rkward' at the command line.
