Volume 40 of of the (electronic) Journal of Statistical Software just came out. It contains my short review of Josef Adler's already pretty popular R in a Nutshell from O'Reilly. You can my review as a pdf via this local preprint, or by visiting the JSS page of the review and its official copy.

RcppClassic 0.9.1

Another pure maintenance release, this time of RcppClassic, the package supporting the deprecated older classic Rcpp API defined in the earlier 2005 to 2006 releases, is now on CRAN

It contains no new code, but smoothes one or two edges in the build process and noticed by the newest versions of R CMD check, just like yesterday's RcppGSL release.

Courtesy of CRANberries, here are the changes to the previous release.

Diff between RcppClassic versions 0.9.0 dated 2010-12-20 and 0.9.1 dated 2011-04-07
