Rcpp 0.9.2

The 0.9.2 release of Rcpp is now on CRAN and Debian.

This version contains a build fix for the older 10.5.* version of OS X and its g++ 4.2.1 compiler; we now skip one test that upset it. CRAN builds for OS X should resume. We also added simple configuration support for the Intel Compiler; feedback would be welcome on the list. Lastly, documentation in the vignettes was expanded a little. The NEWS entry is below; more detail is in the ChangeLog file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.

0.9.2   2011-02-23

    o   The unitTest runit.Module.client.package.R is now skipped on older OS
        X releases as it triggers a bug with g++ 4.2.1 or older; OS X 10.6 is
        fine but as it no longer support ppc we try to accomodate 10.5 too
        Thanks to Simon Urbanek for pinning this down and Baptiste Auguie
        and Ken Williams for additonal testing 

    o   RcppCommon.h now recognises the Intel Compiler thanks to a short
        patch by Alexey Stukalov; this turns off Cxx0x and TR1 features too

    o   Three more setup questions were added to the Rcpp-FAQ vignette

    o   One question about RcppArmadillo was added to the Rcpp-FAQ vignette

Thanks to CRANberries, there is also a diff to the previous release 0.9.1.

As always, even fuller details are on the Rcpp Changelog page and the Rcpp page which also leads to the downloads, the browseable doxygen docs and zip files of doxygen output for the standard formats. A local directory has source and documentation too. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page
