Now that the version of R no longer determines the version of BioConductor, I need to change my definition and approach to staying "current" with my institute-wide installation of R and attendant libraries, especially BioConductor. I used to promise to upgrade both R and libraries 1 month after R version release, which ensured I stayed reasonably current with both. I also kept the old R available, available from command-line as, say, `R-2.15.0`. Now, I am faced with two releases of BioConductor library for each release of R. I am tempted to name my R installation after the combination of R and BioC version numbers, say, R-3.1.3-BioC-3.0.0. and promise to upgrade within 1 month post BioC release.
What are other's doing?
