Hi all,

Since R-3.1.0 the OSX binaries come in two flavors, snow leopard and
mavericks. Actually, both can be used in mavericks and because
currently the Bioconductor project does not support Maverick's
binaries I have the snow leopard installed. However, when trying to
install igraph I get version 0.6.5-2, and version 0.7 is only
available as source (see below code).

I am not sure why this happens, but you can go to the CRAN site, download the 0.7.0 file by hand and install it by hand. I have just tried this, it seems to work.
Eventually Bioconductor will provide Mavericks binaries and the
problem will be fixed by installing the mavericks flavor. However
there might be some bona fide snow leopard users and since my package
depends on igraph 0.7 this can cause confusion as they will have to
install developer tools to get it. Is the reason for this problem
known by the igraph developers?

I did not know about this, actually, and I have no idea about the reason.
Is there a fix scheduled?

We cannot fix this, the binaries are built by CRAN.
Should I ask
instead in the R mailing list?

Yes, maybe on R-devel.

Thanks for the report! Best, Gabor
Thank you.
All the best,
