RcppBDT 0.2.1

A new bug-fix release of the RcppBDT package appeared on CRAN earlier today. David Reiner noticed that the functions getEndOfMonth and getEndOfBizWeek were not working right. These are convenience wrappers around the real functionality provided as a member function to the reference class built by Rcpp modules---which works off a reference instance of the class, and these two convenience functions were not updating the date. This is now fixed.

The complete NEWS entry is below:

Changes in version 0.2.1 (2012-08-08)

  • Bug for getEndOfBizWeek() and getEndOfMonth() who were lacking a call to fromDate(date) to actually pass the date for which the functions are computing the end of business week or month.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for 0.2.1 relative to 0.2.0. As always, feedback is welcome and the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page for Rcpp is the best place to start a discussion.
