English version

This time it is there, the new release of R2spec is on its way and I have to say it brings a huge bunch of new features!

R2spec now comes with a new flavour, R2rpm which allows you to generate directly rpm from the R libraries.

Since I already announced it I won't spend to much time on it.

Check the changelog at the bottom for all the info !

I would like to thanks José Matos and Allen S. Rout for their help to build and improve this release.

French version

Et voila, une nouvelle version de R2spec est dans les tuyaux et je dois dire qu'elle amène tout un tas de nouveautés.

R2spec vous apporte maintenant un nouvel outil, R2rpm qui comme son nom l'indique permet de construire directement un rpm pour une bibliothèque R.

Bon comme je l'ai déjà annoncé je ne vais pas trop m'attarder là-dessus.

Regardez donc le changelog ci-dessous pour toutes les infos !

Je voudrais aussi remercier José Matos et Allen S. Rout pour leur aide dans la construction et l'amélioration de cette release.

Version 3.0.0 -- 05th May 2019
