A new set of RKWard releases is available for [[Download_RKWard|download]]. This brings another series of bugfixes to the KDE 4 branch of RKWard (0.5.0d) and long awaited backports to the KDE 3 branch (0.4.9b).

The changes in detail:

Today, we are pleased to announce that again, a new version of RKWard is available for [[Download_RKWard|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).
==== RKWard 0.5.0d (KDE 4) ====
+
* Fixed: Container of detached windows would sometimes remain after reattaching
+
* Fixed: Global toolbar style was not honored
+
* Fixed: Auto-scroll missing in progress dialogs and data editor
+
* Fix jumping toolbar
+
* Fixed: Several harmless warnings were silenced
+
* Fixed: Argument hints would always stay on top regardless of focus
+
* Fix crash when reaching bottom of command history in context sensitive search
+
* Fix crash while inserting rows in a data.frame with string variables
+
==== RKWard 0.4.9b (KDE 3) ====
+
* Workaround: Deactivate all filemanagement shortcuts in the File Browser. These would sometimes trigger when they should not.
+
* Fix crash while inserting rows in a data.frame with string variables
+
* Fix immediate crash issue with R 2.9.0 (requires recompilation against R 2.9)
+
* Fix device window capturing with R 2.8.0
+
* Extended boxplot plugin
+
* Support data.frames in barplot plugin
+
* New set of plugins: Item Response Theory (by Meik Michalke)

Also, we have once again fixed various usability issues in this, and other areas (details below).
