BH release 1.55.0-2

A new release of BH, our package providing (a large part of the) Boost C++ libraries as a set of template headers for use by R, is now on CRAN.

This is a relatively minor change which expands the set of Boost libraries included in the package to Boost Fusion per issue ticket 7. Boost Fusion is a very clever library providing a fusion of both compile-time meta-programming and run-time programming to provide something similar to the STL (i.e. containers, algorithms, ...) for heterogenous tuples. I also added pointers to both the mailing list and the GitHub issue tracker to the DESCRIPTION file, README and main manual page.

A brief summary of changes from the NEWS file is below.

Changes in version 1.55.0-2 (2015-01-03)

  • Added Boost Fusion requested in GH ticket #7 by Dirk for RcppStreams

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the most recent release.

Comments and suggestions are welcome via the mailing list or the issue tracker at the GitHubGitHub repo.
