This is an alpha pre-release package for testing after merging changes for R.NET to work with R versions 3.5.x.

This includes key contributions by Luke Rasmussen and David Pendray

Unit tests mostly pass when run on a local windows machine, however sometime the test execution hangs, and some few tests seem to often fail under visual studio test explorer. Tests seem to hang on appveyor.
