GGobi2 beta for Windows!

We are very pleased to announce the first beta of GGobi2 for windows

We have made a huge number of changes since the last version:

* much much more stable (thanks to Michael's hard work)
* now much prettier looking (thanks to the move to Gtk2)
* just about every area of the interface has been refined or redesigned
* csv import should now handle any thing you can throw at it
* Rggobi2 has had a major revamp (still ongoing)
* a new development site and bug tracker
* lots of bugs fixes to the barchart, and many of the tools

A big thanks goes to the whole GGobi team for making this happen: Debby Swayne, Michael Lawrence, Di Cook, Heike Hofmann, Hadley Wickham Duncan Temple-Lang and Andreas Buja.

If you do encounter any problems please send an email the mailing list or file a bug report - your feedback is appreciated and we are especially keen to eliminate any bugs that crash GGobi before the official release.

Hi. I just ran across GGobi while looking for something to help with the analysis of large datasets. It looks great. I'm particularly interested in the integration with R using RGgobi. The RGgobi book seems like a very nice introduction to the use of R and Ggobi. However, it seems that the R interface functions have changed completely with release 2.0 of RGgobi. So I'm unable to run the examples given in the book using the R code downloaded from the book's website. Is there any documentation on the mapping from the old functions to the new functions? Thanks for this making this excellent tool.

Yes, Rggobi2 is a work in progress and currently the documentation is rather poor. We will be updating the book with correct R code and adding plenty more documentation in the next few months.
