Encryption and https:

The site has been updated to use encryption. For the web site, old addresses using http: are silently redirected to https:. If you have earlier received warnings from browsers because of the lack of encryption, this upgrade to the server settings should remove them.

The repository at the subdomain https://r.photobiology.info also supports encrypted connections. In addition, because of tightening of security in other ways, if you have been earlier using the address http://www.photobiology.info/R to access the repository, you will need to use https://r.photobiology.info instead from now on. In other words if you are setting this repository address in an .Rprofile file you should edit it to use the new address.

The documentation should be accessed through https://docs.photobiology.info as settings for this subdomain have been changing in the same way.

All these changes should ensure enhanced security for the site and downloads.
