New R and RStudio

R has been upgraded to a pre-release of 3.4.2 and RStudio to 1.0.153. "Tidyverse" is added as standard to R.

R and RStudio are widely used at the department and are now upgraded to a more compatible setup. This involved upgrading R to a pre-release of 3.4.2 and RStudio to 1.0.153. This resolves the plotting issues we have seen within RStudio. We have also increased the default package set for R to now include the following packages:

  • VarianceGamma
  • fBasics
  • rgdal
  • rgeos
  • ggplot2
  • tidyverse

The versions have been set as standard from our module tree, and RStudio is now also loaded by default. If you find yourself requiring a previous version of R (or RStudio), the old versions are retained. We currently support the following versions of R:

  • R/3.3.1-gcc
  • R/3.4.1-gcc
  • R/3.4.2-prerelease-gcc

These can be loaded individually via module load R/3.4.1-gcc and so on. Please report issues to the sysadmin staff, and please include the output of module list in your email.
