The R version numbers and dates are extracted from the main R SVN repository at http://svn.r-project.org/R/.

rversions is in particular useful for determining at any given moment what versions “R-release” and “R-oldrel” refer to. This is useful for e.g. R-hub.

  • R versions are now cached within each R session (@richfitz, #6).
