RKWard fails to start after you have upgraded to R 3.0.x or 3.1.x? RKWard supports R 3.x since version 0.6.1, but ''only'' if it was compiled against R 3.x. This means that ''after'' upgrading R, you will have to re-compile or re-install RKWard. In case of doubt, don't hesitate to [[Contact|contact]] us.

The RKWard team is proud to announce the release of version 0.6.2 of the free statistical software suite -- the first release since April 2013. Next to the usual round of bug-fixing, this release is packed with important new features. One of these is the new RKWard native on-screen graphics device RK(), which finally brings RKWard's graphics device features to the Mac. Plugin developers can utilize some new controls, and fetch information from R, dynamically.
+
Meanwhile work continues on porting RKWard to version 5 ("frameworks") of the KDE libraries. The curious will find some first experimental binaries on our [[Release Schedule]] page.
  
At the some time several of the official plugins have been improved (e.g., the plot export formats now include support for tikzDevice; there's a new dialog to recode categorical data, and the linear regression dialog gains an option to save all predicted values to your workspace). But also there have been notable additions to RKWard plugins that can be downloaded from our external plugin repository. For instance, there is a new package rk.power which adds a GUI for power analysis and sample size estimation to RKWard.

[edit] RKWard 0.6.5 - Much improved preview functionality, and more

02 April 2016

Today, we are pleased to announce that again, a new version of RKWard is available for download. This new release fixes some compilation problems with the upcoming R 3.3.0. However, it is much more than a "hot fix" release. The most notable area of improvements have been previews: In addition to the time-tested plot previews, many RKWard plugins now provide previews of imported data, or results. Also, we have once again fixed various usability issues in this, and other areas (details below).

Meanwhile work continues on porting RKWard to version 5 ("frameworks") of the KDE libraries. The curious will find some first experimental binaries on our Release Schedule page.

As usual, please don't be shy of contacting us with your feedback, suggestions, and contributions!
