We’re excited to announce the general availability of RStudio 1.1. Highlights include:
A connections tab which makes it easy to connect to, explore, and view data in a variety of databases. A terminal tab which provides fluid shell integration with the IDE, xterm emulation, and even support for full-screen terminal applications. An object explorer which can navigate deeply nested R data structures and objects. A new, modern dark theme and Retina-quality icons throughout.
