Shiny v0.10.1 has been released to CRAN. You can either install it from a CRAN mirror, or update it if you have installed a previous version.

install.packages('shiny', repos = 'http://cran.rstudio.com')
# or update your installed packages
# update.packages(ask = FALSE, repos = 'http://cran.rstudio.com')

The most prominent change in this patch release is that we added full Unicode support on Windows. Shiny apps running on Windows must use the UTF-8 encoding for ui.R and server.R (also the optional global.R, README.md, and DESCRIPTION) if they contain non-ASCII characters. See this article for details and examples: http://shiny.rstudio.com/articles/unicode.html

Please note although we require UTF-8 for the app components, UTF-8 is not a general requirement for any other files. If you read/write text files in an app, you are free to use any encoding you want, e.g. you can readLines('foo.txt', encoding = 'Windows-1252'). The article above has explained it in detail.
