RStudio Connect version 1.6.2 is now available!
There are a handful of new features that are highlighted below. We encourage you to upgrade as soon as possible!
Recommend Building R from Source If you have installed R using apt-get, yum, or some other package manager, we recommend that you install R from source instead. This protects you from application breakages when the system version of R is upgraded. We have updated our documentation to reflect these best practices concerning R administration for use with Connect.
