BH 1.60.0-1

A new release of BH is now on CRAN. BH provides a large part of the Boost C++ libraries as a set of template headers for use by R, possibly with Rcpp as well as other packages.

This release both upgrades the version of Boost to the recently-released upstream version Boost 1.60.0 and also adds Boost Phoenix.

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

Changes in version 1.60.0-1 (2015-12-24)

  • Upgraded to Boost 1.60 installed directly from upstream source

  • Added Boost phoenix as discussed in GH ticket #19

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