RcppBDT 0.2.2

February 22, 2014

A new maintenance release of the RcppBDT package is now on CRAN. There is no
new code in this; it mainly accomodates a request by CRAN to standardize the
\code{Imports:} and \code{Depends:} relationships in the \code{DESCRIPTION}
file. We also updated the build process now that we can use Rcpp 0.11.0.

Having said that, there is a lot of new code in the
git repository but I
guess I’ll talk about that when I can make a new upload. Yesterday, this
balked because win-builder
felt the need for a long long int in 64-bit mode which we can
provide once C++11 will be permitted under R 3.1.0, due out in April. Oddly,
no such need arose in 64-bit Linux. Oh well.

The complete NEWS entry is below:

Changes in version 0.2.2 (2014-02-21)

  • Updates to current CRAN Policy standards for Depends: and Imports: in DESCRIPTION

  • Also take advantage of new Rcpp 0.11.0 build options

  • New code remains in GitHub repo master branch until R 3.1.0 is
    release so that we can use C++11 in order to get the long long
    support without which the package does not build on Windows
    (whereas Linux is fine)

Courtesy of
CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report
for 0.2.2 relative to 0.2.1.
As always, feedback is welcome and the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page for Rcpp is
the best place to start a discussion.
