Rcpp 0.9.14

Another release of Rcpp has just appeared on CRAN and was just uploaded to Debian.

It addresses yet another issue we had on OS X and should hopefully put the build issues to rest. Three new (vectorized) sugar functions were added, along with some new regression tests and more. The complete NEWS entry for 0.9.14 is below; more details are in the ChangeLog file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.

Changes in Rcpp version 0.9.14 (2012-09-30)

  • Added new Rcpp sugar functions trunc(), round() and signif(), as well as unit tests for them

  • Be more conservative about where we support clang++ and the inclusion of exception_defines.h and prevent this from being attempted on OS X where it failed for clang 3.1

  • Corrected a typo in Module.h which now again permits use of finalizers

  • Small correction for (unexported) bib() function (which provides a path to the bibtex file that ships with Rcpp)

  • Converted NEWS to NEWS.Rd

Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous release 0.9.13. 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
