R 3.4.1 available on the cluster

The newest R version 3.4.1 (Single Candle) is now available on the cluster. 

This version (in contrast to previous installed versions) has been built with the Intel 2017 Update 4 compilers and the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL) for high performance. Because of this, module intel/2017.4 must be loaded in order to use this version of R.

To provide a more consistent environment between login and compute nodes this version is built without the X11 support. 

Full release notes available here.

To use this software, run

module load intel/2017.4
