Revolutions blog: December 2018 roundup

R help mailing list-2
Happy New Year! For more than 10 years, Microsoft staff and guests have written
about R at the Revolutions blog (http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com) and every
month I post a summary of articles from the previous month of particular
interest to readers of r-help.
