Installation and administration information has moved from this manual to Oracle R Enterprise Installation and Administration Guide. New features related to installation and administration are described in that book.
Release 1.1 includes these new features:
Support for IBM AIX: Oracle R Distribution and Oracle R Enterprise are supported on AIX 5.3 and higher.
Support for Solaris: Oracle R Distribution and Oracle R Enterprise are supported on 10 and higher for both 64-bit SPARC and 64-bit x386 (Intel) processors.
Use improved mathematics libraries in R
You can now use the improved Oracle R Distribution with support for dynamically picking up either the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL) or the AMD Core Math Library (ACML) with Oracle R Enterprise.
On Solaris, Oracle R Distribution dynamically links with Oracle SUN performance library for high speed BLAS and LAPACK operations.
Server runs on Windows
The Oracle R Enterprise Server now runs on 64-bit and 32-bit Windows operating systems.
Support for Oracle Wallet
R scripts no longer need to have database authentication credentials in clear text. Oracle R Enterprise is integrated with Oracle Wallet for that purpose.
The installation scripts have been improved with more prerequisite checks and detailed error messages. Error messages provide specific instructions on remedial actions.
