This release constitutes a quick
follow-up to the last release
which we got out just before CRAN closed for summer vacations.
Some fixes were made right after last release: two harmless warnings from the help file parser of the
development version of R are now addressed, and we stopped using shell
expansions in the Makefile snippets. We also added to some internal speedups
we discovered while prepapring the talk about
week’s useR! meeting.
The NEWS entry follows below:
0.8.5 2010-07-25 o speed improvements. Vector::names, RObject::slot have been improved to take advantage of R API functions instead of callbacks to R o Some small updates to the Rd-based documentation which now points to content in the vignettes. Also a small formatting change to suppress a warning from the development version of R. o Minor changes to Date() code which may reenable SunStudio builds
As always, even fuller details are in Rcpp Changelog page and the Rcpp page which also
leads to the downloads, the browseable
doxygen docs and zip files of doxygen output for the standard formats.
A local directory has
source and documentation too. Questions, comments etc should go to the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page
