RcppGSL 0.3.9: Polish and More Builds

Release 0.3.9 of the RcppGSL package arrived at CRAN today, pretty much exactly one year since the last upload. The RcppGSL package provides an interface from R to the GNU GSL by relying on the Rcpp package.

This release brings some small documentation and CI polish, and enables builds on the newer (and still experimental) windows ‘UCRT’ flavor (which will bring native utf-8 chars to Windows, see this and this write-up) thanks to a PR by Jeroen.

Changes in version 0.3.9 (2021-06-23)

  • The pdf vignette was extended by a small subsection (Dirk).

  • The CI setup was updated to use from r-ci (Dirk).

  • The windows was updated to GSL 2.7, and UCRT support was added (Jeroen in #28).

Courtesy of CRANberries, a summary of changes to the most recent release is also available.

More information is on the RcppGSL page. Questions, comments etc should go to the issue tickets at the GitHub repo.
