RcppGSL 0.3.1

A new version of RcppGSL in now on CRAN and in Debian. The RcppGSL package provides an interface from R to the GNU GSL using our Rcpp package.

This release is one that entirely focused on maintenance. CRAN asked us to change on aspect relative to vignettes, and we added a few more small updates related entirely to packaging. In other words, no user-facing changes.

The NEWS file entries follows below:

Changes in version 0.3.1 (2016-10-02)

  • The unit test driver was updated and simplified, (by request of CRAN) no longer leaves files in '/tmp', and removes two unexported (and unused) test helper functions (PR #10)

  • Switched to run.sh for Travis (PR #11)

  • Use canonical CRAN URLs in README.md

  • Restored 'boxed' display of code in vignette (PR #12)

Courtesy of CRANberries, a summary of changes to the most recent release is available.

More information is on the RcppGSL page. Questions, comments etc should go to the issue tickets at the GitHub repo.
