A rather boring and otherwise uneventful release 0.9.7 of RcppClassic is now at CRAN. This package provides a maintained version of the otherwise deprecated first Rcpp API; no new projects should use it.
Once again no changes in user-facing code. But this makes it the first package to use the very new and shiny pinp package as the backend for its vignette, now converted to Markdown---see here for this new version. We also updated three sources files for tabs versus spaces as the current
g++ version complained (correctly !!) about misleading indents. Otherwise a file
src/init.c was added for dynamic registration, the Travis CI runner script was updated to using
run.sh from our r-travis fork, and we now strip the library after they have been built. Again, no user code changes.
And no iterate: nobody should use this package. Rcpp is so much better in so many ways---this one is simply available as we (quite strongly) believe that APIs are contracts, and as such we hold up our end of the deal.
