RcppXts 0.0.5 on CRAN: Routine Refreshment

A full eight and half years (!!) since its 0.0.4 release, version 0.0.5 of RcppXts is now on CRAN. The RcppXts package demonstrates how to access the export C API of xts which we contributed a looong time ago.

This release contains an accumulated small set of updates made as the CRAN Policies evolved. We now register and use the shared library routines (updates in both src/init.c and NAMESPACE), turned on continuous integration, switched it from the now disgraces service to another, adopted our portable r-ci along with r2, added badges to the, updated to https URLs, and made sure the methods package (from base R) was actually imported (something Rcpp has a need for at startup). That latter part now triggered a recent email from the CRAN maintainers which prompted this release.

The NEWS entries follow.

Changes in version 0.0.5 (2022-08-05)

  • Depends on xts 0.9-6 now on CRAN

  • Exports (and documents) a number of additional functions

  • Switch CI use to r-ci and r2u

  •, DESCRIPTION and NEWS.Rd were updated and expanded

  • NAMESPACE import of the shared library uses registration

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release. A bit more information about the package is available here as well as at the GitHub repo.
