Hi Lionel,

I downloaded the zip file again using a cleaner approach and everything compiled normally.

*Sigh* Sorry for the noise!

>>> * ESS[R]: 'ess-brace-imaginary-offset', 'ess-expression-offset' and
>>>   all delimiter offsets are deprecated.  The settings for indentation
>>>   of continued statements have been replaced by
>>>   'ess-offset-continuations'.  It can be set to either 'cascade' or
>>>   'straight' (the default).
>>> * ESS[R]: A new RStudio style is provided to mimic as closely as

>>>   some of the RStudio users, you will also need to set
>>>   'ess-offset-arguments' to 'prev-line'.

>>>   in order to make the documentation more readable.  You can also
>>>   refill commented lines in the 'examples' field without squashing
>>>   the surrounding code in the comments.
>>> * ESS[R]: ESS can now format your code.  This is controlled through
>>>   the settings 'ess-fill-calls' and 'ess-fill-continuations'.  When
>>>   activated, '(fill-paragraph)' will format your calls and your
>>>   formulas/continuations and make sure they don't go past
