S-Plus 8 emerges from Beta

Back in April 2006, I wrote about S-Plus 8 going to public Beta and predicted therefore that it would be out in Q4 2006.

Well it has finally appeared in May 2007. With such a long release cycle one might expect dramatic changes, but the new features list is largely as I described a year ago:

- Improvements to the Eclipse based Workbench (debugging and profiling)
- New graphic enhancements
- A new package mechanism
- "Over 100 new functions" in the S language

Since there is no information on their site about exactly what is in any of these changes, I can say no more!
