Hi lists,

Just a quick announcement that the Processing provider for R scripts
in QGIS, which was dropped for QGIS 3.0, is now available as a beta
for QGIS 3.4. It's now published as a standalone plugin which must be
manually installed (together with manual installation of the
underlying R software!).

This is a pre-release beta version only -- the script syntax may
change in the final release, so be warned that you may need to update
scripts as a result. But the good news is that this should be 100%
compatible with Processing R scripts from 2.x, with no change required
to the scripts!

To reflect its beta status, the plugin is currently only available via
manual download from GitHub, and isn't (yet) available via the
standard QGIS plugin repository. To install, download the zip release
from https://github.com/north-road/qgis-processing-r/releases/tag/v0.0.2,
and then install via the Plugins -> Manage and Install Plugins >
Install from ZIP tab. After the plugin is installed you'll need to
enable the provider via the Settings > Options > Processing >
Providers > R > Activate checkbox.

Testing feedback is sought and very welcome -- just file issues on
https://github.com/north-road/qgis-processing-r/issues with a detailed
description of any issues you encounter.

This release was made possible thanks to a funding grant by QGIS.org.
