I have been using KF5 RKWard since December 2017  on openSUSE Tumbleweed.
Binaries of latest Git snapshots are currently packaged for Tumbleweed and
upcoming openSUSE 15.0 . So far it has been working very well.
> Downloads are also linked from the release schedule page, above, but
> as a lot of things have changed under the hood (corresponding to a lot
> of hard work by Meik and others). I'll point out the main downloads,
> here, too:
> ---- Source: ----
> ---- MacOS X installer: ----
> For OSX 10.11 or higher. You have to install R 3.4.4, separately.
> ---- Windows installer: ----
> This comes bundled with R 3.4.4.
> ---- Ubuntu binaries: ----
> For regular Ubuntu installs:
> For Ubuntu installs with the CRAN version of R:
> For Ubuntu installs with the CRAN version of R and KF5 backports:
