A preview of Rtools 4.0 - Jeroen Ooms - rstudio::conf(2019L) Video


Rtools is getting a major upgrade. In addition to the latest gcc, it now includes a full build system and package manager to build, install, and distribute external c/c++/fortran libraries needed by R packages. Thereby it bridges the long-standing gap between Windows and MacOS/Linux with respect to the availability of high quality, up-to-date system libraries. In this talk, we will show how to build and install system libraries with Rtools, and manage your Rtools build environment. It should be interesting both for Windows users as well as non-Windows package authors that are interested in reducing the pain of making things work on Windows.
