Rblpapi 0.3.12: Fixes and Updates

The Rblp team is happy to announce a new version 0.3.12 of Rblpapi which just arrived at CRAN. Rblpapi provides a direct interface between R and the Bloomberg Terminal via the C++ API provided by Bloomberg (but note that a valid Bloomberg license and installation is required).

This is the twelveth release since the package first appeared on CRAN in 2016. Changes are detailed below and include both extensions to functionality, actual bug fixes and changes to the package setup. Special thanks goes to Michael Kerber, Yihui Xie and Kai Lin for contributing pull requests!

Changes in Rblpapi version 0.3.12 (2021-12-07)

  • bdh() supports new option returnAs (Michael Kerber and Dirk in #335 fixing #206)

  • Remove extra backtick in vignette (Yihui Xie in #343)

  • Fix a segfault from bulk access with bds (Kai Lin in #347 fixing #253)

  • Support REQUEST_STATUS in bdh (Kai Lin and John in #349 fixing #348)

  • Vignette now uses simplermarkdown (Dirk in #350)

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the this release. As always, more detailed information is on the Rblpapi page. Questions, comments etc should go to the issue tickets system at the GitHub repo.
