Requirements for Posit Professional Drivers#

RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

These drivers require one of the following Posit Professional products installed:

  • RStudio Desktop Pro1
  • Posit Workbench (and previous versions of Workbench, including RStudio Workbench and RStudio Server Pro)
  • Posit Connect (and previous versions of Connect, i.e., RStudio Connect)
  • Shiny Server Pro

The Platform Support page provides additional information about the supported operating systems and browsers that the Posit software supports.

Additionally, Posit software will support the operating systems and browsers listed until the:

  • vendor no longer supports them or
  • until R/Python no longer supports them

  • RHEL/CentOS Linux 7.0, and 8.0

  1. You may still find references to “RStudio” in our documentation, and some of those are expected! Several of our open source products like the RStudio IDE will retain their original names, 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
