Dear Helmut,

» I believe it. I have no problems with bear 2.8.8 under R4.0.2. However, there are errors in functions (or arguments) you don’t call in you packages.

Good points. I just found that the source of package gWidgetRGtk2 cannot be compiled under R v4.0.2. However, the package of gWidgets can.

» » Hopefully it will come back again soon. It happened before as far as I can remember.
»
» Only if the maintainer would do what the word implies. Fix the error(s) and re-submit. Since in this case the maintainer of gWidgets* and gWidgets*2 is the same person

Correct. same author.

» ...
» Fix the errors and submit the packages as the new maintainer. Then it would mean back to the stressful life which was a reason why you don’t host your packages at CRAN for years.

right.

» As above but host binaries (for Windows and MacOS) and the source (for Linuxes) at your site.

I pick up this option for now.

» Jump in at the deep end and adapt your code-base to gWidgets*2. Nasty first though not that bad on the long run.

I am thinking tcltk since it's default GUI for R. Therefore, no extra driver is required. However, it just looks even more ugly than RGtk2 under Windows.

» Two stories of this year... What if the maintainer would have been on vacation?

Rule#1: no vacation for all R package developers!

» In the transition for R3.6.3 to R4.0.0 some tests of our package replicateBE...

really? Then I guess that it could be much more packages removed from CRAN since switching to R v4.0.0.

All the best,
