> RPy Version 0.3.3 is now available from the RPy home page at
> http://rpy.sf.net.   
> What is RPy?
> --------------------
> RPy is a very simple, yet robust, Python (http://www.python.org) interface
> to the R environment for statistical data analysis and graphics
> (http://www.r-project.org).  RPy can manages translation between python
> and R formats for all kinds of R objects and can execute arbitrary R
> functions (including the graphic functions).  All errors from the R
> language are converted to proper Python exceptions.  All module installed
> on the R system are available from Python.
> Consequently, RPy allows Python programmers to easily add advanced
> statistical functionality to Python programs.  It allows R programmers the
> ability to use Python to control R computations and to interface them with
> other systems.  Examples include RSOAP
> (http://www.analytics.washington.edu/Zope/projects/RSOAP),  RSessionDA
> (http://www.analytics.washington.edu/Zope/projects/RSOAP), and RStatServer
> (http://www.analytics.washington.edu/Zope/projects/RStatServer).   These
> products, which make heavy use of RPy have been used in a production
> environments for two years.
> New features in 0.3.3
> -------------------------------
> o Now works with R 1.8.X
> o Windows version merged into the Unix source tree
> o Added lcall() method for calling R functions using a list of (name,
>   value) pairs for the parameters.  This is works around the python
>   (mis-)feature of using unordered python dictionaries for named
>   parameters, resulting in the loss of order for named parameters.
> o All reported bugs have been fixed.
> o New maintainer: Gregory R. Warnes <gregory_r_warnes at groton.pfizer.com>
> For more information visit the RPy home page at http://rpy.sf.net, or the
