Steve Mosher has continued his work on GHCN station global temperature reconstruction package in R. The most recent version is documented in his blog here. He has developed an elegant set of commands for computing global temperatures in R and is working on release of an R library package for that purpose. Recently he incorporated a method from Berkley which Tamino posted. Steve has decided to work entirely in the global temperature datasets on his blog and originally I wasn’t sure if he would keep going or what it would turn into. I check out what has been happening from time to time and got tired of having to google him to find it so I placed the links on the right. He appears to be doggedly developing a very complete package of commands which will process the raw data by a variety of reasonable (and documented) methods.
