Welcome – R-Forge

What are R and R-Forge?

R is `GNU S', a freely available language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques: linear and nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification, clustering, etc. Please consult the R-project homepage for further information.
R-Forge offers a central platform for the development of R packages, R-related software and further projects. It is based on FusionForge offering easy access to the best in SVN, daily built and checked packages, mailing lists, bug tracking, message boards/forums, site hosting, permanent file archival, full backups, and total web-based administration.

A Platform for the Whole R Community

Of course, you may also browse the site without registration, but will only have limited access to some features. For details see the documentation.
