A new minor release of the inline package just arrived on CRAN. inline facilitates writing code in-line in simple string expressions or short files. The package is mature and stable, and can be considered to be in maintenance mode: Rcpp used it extensively in the vrey early days before Rcpp Attributes provided an even better alternative. Seveal other package still rely on inline.
One of these package is rstan, and Ben Goodrich updated our use of
system2() allowing for better error diagnostics. We also did a bit of standard maintenance to Travis CI and the README.md file.
