Software Version Updates: Python, R (12/28/18)

Python Version Update (available December 28, 2018)

  • In the terminal shell and in scripts, "python3" will now point to python 3.6 (was python 3.5).  While python 3.5 will still be available for some time, it needs to be explicitly invoked as "python3.5".
  • In Jupyter, a "Python 3" notebook will now use a python 3.6 kernel (instead of python 3.5).  There will no longer be direct support for python 3.5 in the Vocareum Jupyter installation.
R & RStudio Version Update (available December 28, 2018)
  • RStudio will be updated to version 1.1.456 (using R version 3.5.1).  The old version 1.0.136 (using R version 3.3.3) will be deprecated and no longer supported.  
  • In Jupyter, a "RStudio" notebook will now use a R version 3.5.1 kernel (instead of version 3.3.3).  There will no longer be direct support for R version 3.3.3 in the Vocareum Jupyter installation.
