RcppDate wraps the date library by Howard Hinnant for use with R. This header-only modern C++ library has been in pretty wide-spread use for a while now, and adds to C++11/C++14/C++17 what will be (with minor modifications) the ‘date’ library in C++20. Since the original 0.0.1 CRAN release I have also added this package along with RcppCCTZ and nanotime (which uses / requires both) to Debian so an
apt based install is also possible for some.
Release 0.0.2 arrived on CRAN yesterday. It simply updates the included library to version upstream version 3.0.0, and touches up some packaging internals for continued integration.
