RInside 0.2.12

A new release 0.2.12 of RInside is now on CRAN. RInside provides a set of convenience classes which facilitate embedding of R inside of C++ applications and programs, using the classes and functions provided by the Rcpp integration package.

This release adds new examples which were contributed by Christian Authmann, plus some updates and fixes including one requested by the CRAN maintainers regarding GNU extensions to Makefile. The NEWS extract below has more details.

Changes in RInside version 0.2.12 (2015-01-27)

  • Several new examples have been added (with most of the work done by Christian Authmann):

    • standard/rinside_sample15.cpp shows how to create a lattice plot (following a StackOverflow question)

    • standard/rinside_sample16.cpp shows object wrapping, and exposing of C++ functions

    • standard/rinside_sample17.cpp does the same via C++11

    • sandboxed_servers/ adds an entire framework of client/server communication outside the main process (but using a subset of supported types)

  • standard/rinside_module_sample9.cpp was repaired following a fix to InternalFunction in Rcpp

  • For the seven example directories which contain a Makefile, the Makefile was renamed GNUmakefile to please R CMD check as well as the CRAN Maintainers.

CRANberries also provides a short report with changes from the previous release. More information is on the RInside page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the Rcpp R-Forge page.
