Title:           What is new in R?

Abstract:  The capabilities of R have evolved considerably since its first public releases in the 1990s, with each major version bringing in new functionality. In this lecture I will discuss two areas which have seen major evolutions in R 3.x.y: the inclusion in the core distribution of the “parallel” package , which provides facilities for parallel computing; and the release of the Hadleyverse packages, which streamline common data cleaning tasks.
