A new release of the R GUI Rattle is making its way to CRAN (currently on the Austrian server).

Latest version 2.5.47 (revision 527) released 13 Nov 2010.

Change Log link for details –

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rattle/index.html

Major changes relate to simplifying the installation of Rattle under the recently released R 2.12.0 on Microsoft Windows 32bit and 64bit.

The major advance for R 2.12.0 is the improved support for 64bit Microsoft Windows and thus support for much larger datasets in memory.

See the new installation steps at http://datamining.togaware.com/survivor/Internet_Connected.html

For Microsoft Windows installations, to upgrade your Rattle installation you may need to remove any old installs of the Gtk+ libraries using the Uninstall application from the Microsoft Windows Control Panel). Then install the new Gtk2 library:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gtk-win/gtk2-runtime-2.22.0-2010-10-21-ash.exe

You can the update Rattle to version 2.5.47:

> install.packages(“rattle“)

>library(rattle)

rattle.info()

The output from rattle.info() will include an “install.packages” command that will identify Rattle related packages that have updates available. You can cut-and-paste that command to the R prompt to have those packages updated in your installation.
