inline 0.3.19: Another Update

A new release of the inline package got to CRAN today, following and further updating the recent update from earlier in the month. inline facilitates writing code in-line in simple string expressions or short files. The package was used quite extensively by Rcpp in the days before Rcpp Attributes arrived on the scene providing an even better alternative for its use cases. inline is still used by rstan and a number of other packages.

This release builds on and extends the work of the recent 0.3.18 release and tweaks some of the test. We cannot fully test all platforms used by CRAN so some times iterations such as this one are needed. The package was uploaded a few days ago, but it sometimes takes a few days to clarify changes over email to the CRAN maintainers whose work is still greatly appreciated.

The NEWS extract follows and details the changes some more.

Changes in inline version 0.3.19 (2021-05-25)

  • Documentation for moveDLL was updated and extended (Johannes in #22).

  • A few more tests were made conditional the test platform (Dirk in #24).

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release.
