The final version of RStudio v0.95 is now available for download from our website (thanks to everyone who put the preview release through its paces over the last couple of weeks!). Highlights of the new release include:

  • Projects — A new system for managing R projects that enables easy switching between working directories and per-project contexts for source documents, workspaces, and history.
  • Code Navigation — Typeahead navigation by file or function name (Ctrl+.) and the ability to navigate directly to the definition of any function (F2 or Ctrl+Click).
  • Version Control — Integrated support for Git and Subversion, including changelist management, diffing/staging, and project history.

Quite a bit has been added to RStudio since the initial v0.92 release a year ago. We’ve put together a new screencast that includes a quick tour of the product and also highlights some of the new features in v0.95:

There is also an interview with RStudio founder JJ Allaire over on DecisionStats that has a more in-depth discussion of the release and the RStudio project in general.

The evolution of RStudio is a direct result of the many in-depth conversations we’ve had with users at meetups, conferences, and on our support forum. We realize that there’s plenty more to do and hope we can keep up with all of the great feedback! In that spirit we hope to see lots of folks this Thursday night at the Chicago RUG meetup as well as in February in Houston and Los Angeles.

The next version of RStudio (v0.95) is now available as a preview release. Highlights include:

  • Projects — A new system for managing R projects that enables easy switching between working directories, running multiple instances of RStudio with different projects, and per-project contexts for source documents, workspaces, and history.
  • Code Navigation — Typeahead navigation by file or function name (Ctrl+.) and the ability to navigate directly to the definition of any function (F2 or Ctrl+Click).
  • Version Control — Integrated support for Git and Subversion, including changelist management, diffing/staging, and project history.

Detailed documentation on the new features will be available along with the final release of v0.95, which we expect to make available by the end of January.

We’re also planning on being at the Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles R User Groups over the next few weeks. We’ll be talking about the new release as well as the general state of the project and where people would like to see us go in the future. Meeting dates are:

Thanks in advance to everyone who tries out the preview release (you can download it here). Let us know what works, what doesn’t, and what else you’d like to see us do.
