GFF3 and FASTA files from the latest release of  Gencode  are now available via AnnotationHub. (biocVersion 3.2 only) 

One can access GFF3 and FASTA files from the latest release of Homo sapiens (release 23) using the following code snippet :

> library(AnnotationHub)
> ah = AnnotationHub()
snapshotDate(): 2015-08-26
> Human_gff = query(ah, c("Gencode", "gff", "human"))
> Human_gff

# $species: Homo sapiens
# $rdataclass: GRanges
# additional mcols(): taxonomyid, genome, description, tags, sourceurl,
#   sourcetype
# retrieve records with, e.g., 'object[["AH49554"]]'

The GFF3 files are downloaded and read into R as a GenomicRanges object, while the FASTA files are indexed and both the Fasta file and its index are returned as a 'FaFile' object. 

> class(gff)
[1] "GRanges"
attr(,"package")
[1] "GenomicRanges"

> fas = ah[["AH49567"]]

Similarly, Gencode GFF3 and FASTA files for current Mouse release ( M6 ) can be accessed with : 

> Mouse_gff = query(ah, c("Gencode", "gff", "mouse"))
> Mouse_fasta = query(ah, c("Gencode", "fasta", "mouse"))

> packageVersion('AnnotationHub')
[1] ‘2.1.40’
