[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!
