RcppSpdlog 0.0.11 on CRAN: Small Enhancement

Version 0.0.11 of RcppSpdlog is now on CRAN and in Debian. RcppSpdlog bundles spdlog, a wonderful header-only C++ logging library with all the bells and whistles you would want that was written by Gabi Melman, and also includes fmt by Victor Zverovich.

This release adds support for a basic file logger as a alternative to the console logger. This can be helpful with code which suppresses or hides console output – as for example unit test code does. We also expose the formatting helper function for direct use at the C level from other packages, and mention the handy wrapper spdl in the README.

The NEWS entry for this release follows.

Changes in RcppSpdlog version 0.0.11 (2022-12-13)

  • Export the formatter at C level

  • Mention package spdl in README.md

  • Support simple file-based logger

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report. More detailed information is on the RcppSpdlog page, or the package documention site.
