Another minor release, now at 0.2.4, of our RcppRedis package arrived on CRAN yesterday. RcppRedis is one of several packages connecting R to the fabulous Redis in-memory datastructure store (and much more). RcppRedis does not pretend to be feature complete, but it may do some things faster than the other interfaces, and also offers an optional coupling with MessagePack binary (de)serialization via RcppMsgPack. The package has carried production loads on a trading floor for several years. It also supports pub/sub dissemination of streaming market data as per this earlier example.
This update is (just like the previous one) fairly mechanical. CRAN noticed a shortcoming of the default per-package help page in a number of packages, in our case it was matter of adding one line for a missing alias to the Rd file. We also demoted the mention of the suggested (but retired) rredis package to a mere mention in the DESCRIPTION file as a formal Suggests: entry, even with an added Additional_repositories, create a NOTE. Life is simpler without those,
The detailed changes list follows.
Changes in version 0.2.4 (2023-08-19)
Add missing alias for ‘RcppRedis-package’ to
Remove Suggests: rredis which triggers a NOTE nag as it is only on an ‘Additional_repositories’.
