This blog is updated daily.
A general description is here.
‘R CMD check’ now checks for the correct use of ‘$(LAPACK_LIBS)’ (as well as ‘$(BLAS_LIBS)’), since several CRAN recent submissions have ignored ‘Writing R Extensions’.
It no longer installs files ‘inst/doc/Rplots.ps’ and ‘inst/doc/Rplots.pdf’. These are almost certainly left-overs from ‘Sweave’ runs, and are often large.
