R Versions 3.4.0 and 3.4.1 are ready. See tags.
Q: What is the difference between robbyjo/r-mkl-bioconductor with robbyjo/r-mkl-shlib-bioconductor?
A: Both have the same set of libraries. The latter compile R as shared library (hence "shlib"), which allows integration with other languages (e.g., C/C++, Python, Ruby, etc.). The drawbacks are:
- R developers claim that having shlib enabled will make R run slower. However my limited empirical results say that they are about the same.
- The shlib enabled version is quite a bit bigger.
