What version of R is in the FROM openanalytics/r-base image?

What version of R is in the FROM openanalytics/r-base image?

From Git, it looks like it’s 3.6.1 (https://github.com/openanalytics/r-base/blob/master/Dockerfile).

If I need the latest version of R (4.0) should I start my own image?

Hi Melissa,

On docker-hub, there are various versions of the openanalytics/r-base image (https://hub.docker.com/r/openanalytics/r-base/tags) - each is designated a ‘tag’ which defines the R version included.

For example, if I wanted 4.0.2, I would use:
docker pull openanalytics/r-base:4.0.2
