A bug-fix release 0.9.12 of Rcpp arrived earlier today on CRAN and is now in Debian too.

This fixes a minor snafu with the Rcpp::Enviroment constructor following a minor change made for 0.9.11. It also reduces the number of unit tests running by default as CRAN was complaining that it took to long. I am not impresses---tests are for running, not skipping. Lastly, the cleanup needed to be extended to another directory.

The complete NEWS entry for 0.9.12 is below; more details are in the ChangeLog file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.

0.9.12  2012-06-23

o   Corrected Rcpp::Environment class by removing (empty) ctor following
rev3592 (on May 2) where default argument for ctor was moved

o   Unit testing now supports argument --allTests to impose that all
tests are executed; otherwise some expensive tests are skipped. This
is arguably not the right thing to do, but CRAN maintainers insist
on faster tests.

o   The cleanup script now also considers inst/unitTests/testRcppClass/src


Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous release 0.9.11. As always, even fuller details are on the 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
