Not mentioned in that link is that R and the R Essentials are now automatically installed with Statistics, so you no longer have to go through the hassle of those steps in order to install and use R-based extensions and programs.. There are also improvements in the Python setup.

I'm still using v26, so apologies if this has been done in v27 or v28. Is it not about time for SPSS to add a "Check for updates" option in the Help menu? My Stata 16 has that. It generates an update command. I ran it just now. Here is the output:
Last check for updates: 21 Aug 2021
New update available: none (as of 21 Aug 2021)
Current update level: 08 Jul 2021 (what's new)
Do nothing; all files are up to date.
When an update is available, a clickable link appears to install the update. No fuss, no muss. No navigating around confusing websites. I don't understand why SPSS has not yet done something similar. YMMV.

Thanks Jon. Is there a hot fix page on the SPSS main site? I can't seem to locate it.
