A new RcppEigen release was put into CRAN (and Debian) a few days ago. It brings Eigen 3.3.* to R.

Once again, Yixuan Qiu did most of the heavy lifting over a multi-month period as some adjustments needed to be made in the package itself, along with coordination downstream.

The complete NEWS file entry follows.

Changes in RcppEigen version (2017-04-29)

  • Updated to version 3.3.3 of Eigen

  • Fixed incorrect function names in the examples, thanks to Ching-Chuan Chen

  • The class MappedSparseMatrix<T> has been deprecated since Eigen 3.3.0. The new structure Map<SparseMatrix<T> > should be used instead

  • Exporters for the new type Map<SparseMatrix<T> > were added

  • Travis CI is now driven via from our forked r-travis

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