R by Radford Neal

Radford Neal recently announced the release of pretty quick R (pqR), a fork of R from 2.15.0. It’s got lots of nice performance boosts, the most valuable of which for me is transparent multiprocessing capability.

I won’t repeat any more of the the post announcing it, check it out for yourself. I hate to be a back-seat developer, but why not use the name fastR?
