CRAN and R v2.2.1 for Windows

Henrik Bengtsson-2
Thanks for the new updates in v2.2.1.

I just noticed a few "problems" on
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/.

1) The CHANGES and NEWS files for v2.2.1 does not include info on v2.2.1
but only details up until v2.2.0, cf.
http://cran.r-project.org/src/base/NEWS

2) The patched version is now denoted "beta" (files and installation
directory), which I believe is misleading since it is a patch of the
"stable" version.

Cheers

Henrik

Yes, we noticed that just after packaging; the patches will fix it.

That should be fixed soon.  The handling for betas and patch versions is
different, and sometimes there's a bit of a delay in the switchover as
things fail on one or two builds.

They have info for "R 2.2.0 patched" and 2.2.1 is just a frozen
version of that. I.e., the only problem is that we forgot to change
the heading (and that nobody bothered to check for this sort of thing
in the 2-week beta period!).

I noticed the issue just after building the release, but decided that
it wasn't worth messing with the SVN tags for something as small as
this.

"2.2.0 Patched" is changed to "2.2.1 beta" during the beta period. The
release script ends with

cd $SRCDIR
echo $REL "Patched"  > VERSION
svn commit -m "setup patch version"

so I believe this is a temporary situation and that r-patched will
become "2.2.1 Patched" next time around.
