OpenMx 2.0.1 installation fails for R 3.2.0 on OS X

If I do

source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R')

the result is

You are now installing OpenMx 2.0.
OpenMx 2.0 has a number of exciting new features, described in more detail at 
http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/2014/10/openmx-version-20-officially-released 
and in the OpenMx User's Guide.
Most OpenMx-1.4 scripts will work under OpenMx 2.0, but users who wish to download and install the previous stable version can run 
source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx1.R')
instead.  We will only be maintaining getOpenMx1.R for a short while, so we do encourage you to upgrade soon!

Give it another try. We

Give it another try. We updated our repository just this morning. But please post your result to this thread, whether or not it succeeds this time around.

Which version of R are you

Which version of R are you running? Also, if you have a version of OpenMx currently installed, which is it?

I recently installed R 3.2.0

I recently installed R 3.2.0 for OSX. Before, I had an old version of R and OpenMx worked fine, but when I installed R 3.2.0, I had to reinstall all my packages, and OpenMx was the only one I couldn't re-install.

Still the same

I still get the same error. Executed source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R') some minutes ago.
