[Fwd: Re: How to activate the R commands in SciViews]
Well.. plans are there from a long time to rewrite SciViews completely
and make it platform independent (to work on Linux/Unix and MacOS X, as
well as Windows). I have done some work in this direction when time
permitted, but I am pretty busy with other work. During the holidays, I
will continue to work in this direction. I will try to package a first
running version of SciViews compatible with latest R and Rcmdr for
Windows and Linux for next September. At least, I *have* to do so,
because I *need* it for one of my teachings which will be done in a
different University (where all machines are running with Linux)!
So, my advice would be to check the web site again in September/October
for some news. Unfortunately, I cannot promise more. Sorry for the long
delays. I do my best, and the second programmer (Eric Lecoutre) has left
the project a long time ago... so, I am alone on this!
