Hi All,

WriteXLS version 6.0.0 has been released and is available on CRAN.

The key changes are:

1. More robust handling of embedded newline ('\n') and carriage return ('\r') characters, double quotes, and two character sequences of a backslash character ('\') followed by another character, within a data value, has been implemented. An indirect consequence of this more robust handling, is better support for multiline cells in the resultant Excel worksheet.

2. New 'AllText' argument to globally handle/overcome Excel's default reformatting of erstwhile numeric values with leading and/or trailing zeros. This option enhances prior improvements to preserving leading and/or trailing zeros on a worksheet cell specific basis.

3. Updated Perl libraries are included as apropos.
