Dear all,

I found the package cairoDevice was upgraded again. As default, it is installed using the binary (*.tgz) from CRAN. Then it will incur errors when using together with RGtk2 for macOS users. So please install or upgrade the package cairoDeivce from source, if running bear. Type install.packages("cairoDevice",type="source") in the terminal. It will fix the errors. Do the same thing for the package RGtk2 (install.packages("RGtk2",type="source")) upgrade later.

All the best,

A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues
(or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and
to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment.
