The Java auto-update process updates the latest version of Java on a user’s Windows and OS X machine.During the automatic update from JRE 7 to JRE 8, if a user only has one version of Java 7 the auto-update process will replace that JRE 7 with the latest version of JRE 8 leaving only JRE 8 in the system. Instead of hard coding strings in an application one will use an id for a string. Due to its subversiveness (in a good way) its makings are implicit. Familiar example of resources are strings, colors, and bitmaps.
Not all people would like an automatic installation, I completely get that.
To update R, you can simply run the following code: The package also offers functions for installing various other software on Windows. Since this is my first R package, I might have (e.g: probably have) missed something here or there.
These functions include: install.pandoc (which was mentioned on this blog recently), install.git, install. So any comment on how to improve my code/documentation/R-fu, will be most welcomed (here or on github).
It's not really a new thing but it seems to have been more highlighted lately.
Update after update have been released to address these issues, and it's really great that they're trying to fix these issues.
