RStudio 1.1 new features


#1

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at: http://www.rstudio.com/resources/videos/rstudio-1-1-new-features/

In this talk, Kevin will give a tour of the new features that became part of the v1.1 release of the RStudio IDE. The following features will be covered:

  • The Terminal tab, giving access to a shell directly within the IDE,
  • The Object Explorer, for inspecting deeply-nested R objects,
  • The modern theme, including a dark IDE theme to accompany the dark editor themes,
  • The Connections tab, for managing connections to external SQL data stores,
  • Improvements to Git integration, making it easier to manage git branches from within the IDE, alongside a small set of other miscellaneous features that made their way into the v1.1.
