Shiny v0.10.2 has been released to CRAN. To install it:


This version of Shiny requires R 3.0.0 or higher (note the current version of R is 3.1.1). R 2.15.x is no longer supported.

Here are the most prominent changes:

## app.R
server <- function(input, output) {
  output$distPlot <- renderPlot({
    hist(rnorm(input$obs), col = 'darkgray', border = 'white')

ui <- shinyUI(fluidPage(
      sliderInput("obs", "Number of observations:",
                  min = 10, max = 500, value = 100)

shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)
