So there is a 2.5.2. There are new 2.5.2 bundles for windows & Mac OS X. The official win/mac binaries of R were built statically with 2+-years-old freetype with a few known problems.

First: Sorry for the blank message. Need more coffee. Second: Does this mean that only Mac users who are still using 2.15.x need to worry about this issue? Third: I'm reading this (and Terry's comment about singularity conditions) to mean that a numerical discrepancy between vignette output when code was run being from what was expected was causing a segfault under some situation that I cannot quite reconstruct. Was the implication that Mac users (of 2.15.x) need to build from sources only if they wanted to build the survival package from source? Does this have any implications for those of us who use the survival package as the binary? (And I'm using 3.0.2, so a split answer might be needed to cover 2.15.x and the current versions separately) -- David. > > Hin-Tak Leung wrote: >> The freetype people fixed the 2nd set of issues with system fonts shipped with >> Mac OS X, and released 2.5.1 almost immediately after that.
