Re: Assembling an initial development roadmap for Arrow in R

hi all,

We've made pretty amazing progress on the R library in the last 2
months (kudos to Romain and Javier)! I made a pass through that
initial document I drafted and opened JIRA issues for anything that
seemed well-scoped that isn't done yet. Others are free to double
check my work and open any issues for work you want to see happen

There's 37 issues open on


There's still a lot of work ahead of us (not the least figuring out
how to package / enable R users to install this software on all
platforms), but we are on our way!
