A new release 0.2.16 of RInside arrived on CRAN and in Debian today. This comes almost exactly one year after the previous release 0.2.15. 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 Rcpp.
This release brings one new feature, contributed by Lance Bachmeier (with some additional post-processing by me). It adds the ability to embed and call R from C programs and applications. The interface is more limited as we do not get Rcpp for automagic conversion. But this offers the door to a number of applications supporting plain C interface, and the new examples directory for example shows one for ruby. We may add others.
The short list of changes since the last release were:
Changes in RInside version 0.2.16 (2020-03-12)
RInside is now embeddable (with a reduced interface) from C applications thanks to Lance Bachmeier (who is now co-author) plus some polish by Dirk in #43)
R_SESSION_INIIALIZEDto list of excluded variables.
Added simple diagnostics function to have a registered function.
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, or to issues tickets at the GitHub repo.
