S7: An Object Oriented System Meant to Become a Successor to S3 and S4

A new object oriented programming system designed to be a successor to S3 and S4. It includes formal class, generic, and method specification, and a limited form of multiple dispatch. It has been designed and implemented collaboratively by the R Consortium Object-Oriented Programming Working Group, which includes representatives from R-Core, 'Bioconductor', 'Posit'/'tidyverse', and the wider R community.
