Rcpp 0.9.5

A maintenance release version 0.9.5 of Rcpp is now on CRAN and in Debian.

This release comprises a number of minor fixes, extensions as well as small additions to the documentation and examples which have accumulated since the last release in April. The complete NEWS entry is below; more details are in the ChangeLog file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.

0.9.5   2011-07-05

    o   New Rcpp-FAQ examples on using the plugin maker for inline's
        cxxfunction(), and on setting row and column names for matrices
    o   New sugar functions: mean, var, sd

    o   Minor correction and extension to STL documentation in Rcpp-quickref

    o   wrap() is now resilient to NULL pointers passed as in const char *
    o   loadRcppModules() gains a "direct" argument to expose the module instead
        of exposing what is inside it

    o   Suppress a spurious warning from R CMD check on packages created with
        Rcpp.package.skeleton(..., module=TRUE)

    o   Some fixes and improvements for Rcpp sugar function 'rlnorm()'

    o   Beginnings of new example using OpenMP and recognising user interrupts

Thanks to CRANberries, there is also a diff to the previous release 0.9.4:

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
