Upgrade RStudio Professional Drivers#

Upgrading from RStudio Professional Drivers 1.4.0#

In version 1.4.0, the RStudio Professional Drivers were installed using the installer script. Starting in version 1.6.1, the installer script used in version 1.4.0 has been replaced and RStudio Professional Drivers are now downloaded and installed using any of the following methods:

  • .rpm packages
  • .deb packages
  • Your system's package manager

In addition to the new functionality provided in this release, these new methods make future upgrades of the Pro Drivers much easier.

We recommend removing existing installations of version 1.4.0 of the Pro Drivers to avoid the accidental use of the wrong version of the drivers in your R and Python code. However, if desired, both versions of the drivers can coexist in the same system and be used without issues.

To uninstall version 1.4.0 of the Pro Drivers, remove the directory that they were installed to.
