(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A new release (now at version 0.8.5) of
is now on CRAN and in

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
RProtoBuf for
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
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
