R Extension missing?

hi,

I noticed R Extension from previous versions (5 and 6) from Rapidminer is missing in 7.2 version. There is only a R scripting extension. Is it not yet compatible and will it come later? or is it the same as the R scripting extension?

I'm wondering if its the same because it looks entirely different...

    That;s the old R extension you're using, we've "sunsetted it" and it is no longer compatible starting with version 6.4 I believe. Please use the new R scripting extension.

     

    Note: the new R scripting extension no longer has the GUI for writing the scripts in RapidMiner. You'll have you use whatever your favorite R script editor is and then copy and paste the script into the new R Scripting operartor (called: Execute R).

    thanks, one more question,

    how does it work with the compiler, does it use the regular R program in the background? or how is it executing R programs? and what is the scope of the extension? can I do plot visualisation and everything else like in R? including the use of different libraries ?

    Sure.

     

    It uses the Rscript.exe to execute the script. When you install the extension it will ask you for the path to your Rscript.exe.

     

    It's a nicer solution that marrying up one version of R with the old extension. This way you can use any version of R. :)
