  1. You may still find references to “RStudio” in our documentation, and some of those are expected! Several of our open source products will not change, like the RStudio IDE, while our professional products’ names have changed to “Posit”, e.g., Posit Connect. To minimize user confusion, past versions of our professional products will go by their old names until they are no longer supported. For more information about our product names, please see the rebranding blog post
