Dear R users,

RMySQL 0.7-2 is now available on CRAN:


 From the NEWS file:

* New maintainer is Jeffrey Horner <jeff.horner at vanderbilt.edu>.

* We no longer distribute libmysql.dll. This library is now found
  either by reading the MYSQL_HOME environment variable or by reading
  the windows registry entries.

* Removed dependence on MySQL C function load_defaults() as it was
  meant for command-line tools, not for (re)connecting to a database.

* Fixed \r issue with dbWriteTable().

* Tests have been added and depend on proper values set in the
  environment variables MYSQL_DATABASE, MYSQL_USER, and
