Last activity was in November - I dont know whether they are still working on this, but someone could pick it up from here (there is a TODO list on the github page linked above)

it was updated again in April, 2020 but apparently it was not updated to reflect that finally RStudio 1.3.x arrived in May, 2020. BTW, Felipe Borges and colleagues based their work on what was provided by Alexander Wilms

Any news here?

Maybe it would be good to create a runtime providing R and package that separetly from RStudio. It might be interesting for e.g. Jamovi and Jasp too.
