A new maintenance RcppSMC release 0.2.6 arrived at CRAN yesterday. It chiefly updates the code to comply with
g++-11 which default to C++17 – which brings us
std::data(). And if one is not careful, as we weren’t in three files, this can clash with other uses of
data as I tweeted a good week ago. Otherwise some JSS URLs now sport the preferred shorter doi form.
RcppSMC provides Rcpp-based bindings to R for the Sequential Monte Carlo Template Classes (SMCTC) by Adam Johansen described in his JSS article. Sequential Monte Carlo is also referred to as Particle Filter in some contexts. The package features the Google Summer of Code work by Leah South in 2017, and by Ilya Zarubin in 2021.
This release is summarized below.
Changes in RcppSMC version 0.2.6 (2021-12-17)
Updated URLs to JSS for the new DOI scheme upon their request
Adjusted three source files for C++17 compilation under g++-11
