With the arrival earlier today of the stochvol package onto the CRAN network for R, our Rcpp project reached a new milestone: 100 packages have either a Depends:, Imports: or LinkingTo: statement on it.

The full list will always be at the bottom of the CRAN page for Rcpp; I also manually edit a list on my Rcpp page. But for the record as of today, here is the current list as produced by a little helper script I keep:

 pcaMethods         Rdisop             Risa              
 rTANDEM  

As developers of Rcpp, we are both proud and also a little humbled. The packages using Rcpp span everything from bringing new libraries to R, to implementing faster ways of doing things we have before to doing completely new things. It is an exciting time to be using R, and to be connecting R to C++, especially with so many exciting things happening in C++ right now. Follow the Rcpp links for more, and come join us on the Rcpp-devel mailing list to discuss and learn.
