Hi Yung-jin,

» 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.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ;-)

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

Duno. On R-help and esp. R-pkg-devel there were some confused discussions. We were very happy that the default in data.frame() is since R4.0.0 StringsAsFactors = FALSE. However, it had side-effects. If a library reads data and requires factors in a model, the old default worked. The same code in R4.0.0 terminated with an error (have to either read with StringsAsFactors = TRUE or factorize later).

Since 4.0.2 was released just 16 days after 4.0.1 I wonder whether this is all which was changed under the hood. The name “Taking Off Again” is telling.
