There's a new version of RStudio with improvements including an object explorer. 

RStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for R and includes a code console, syntax-highlighting editor, and tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management.

The improvements to RStudio start with a new connections tab in the IDE to make it easier to connect to databases and explore the data within them. The connections tab has a new Connection wizard to guide you through making a connection, with supported data sources including those available via ODBC, Spark, and those from R packages.

A new terminal tab is designed to provides access to the system shell, as well as xterm emulation and support for full-screen terminal applications. There's also a new modern dark theme and better quality icons. The theme works with all the panels, as well as other features like Notebooks, Debugging, Profiling , Menus and the Object Explorer.

The object explorer is the other main improvement. It is similar in use to the data view that can be used for inspecting data frames and other tabular R objects. The new object explorer lets you inspect hierarchical (list-like) R objects as well. Explorable objects will be shown with a magnifying glass, and clicking on this icon will open the associated item in the object explorer.

Alongside the standard version, there's also a new version of RStudio Server Pro. This adds support for floating licenses, which make it  possible to run RStudio Server Pro in Docker containers, virtual machines, and cloud computing instances. It also has improved session management, and tools for administrators, including the ability to send users notifications and automatically clean up unused sessions.
