The reason for the new version that I had experimented with a different way to test endianness (as needed for the
NumPy file headers) but accidentally sent an interim tarball to CRAN which
still wanted to include
endian.h promptly breaking Windows
builds. So now we do something even simpler and just rely on the (even more
complete) test for endianness when R is built, which prevents all sorts of
complications for us and builds everywhere (with thanks to Brian Ripley for the suggestion).
While we were at it, we also added a new unit test.
Full changes are listed below.
Changes in version 0.2.2 (2013-11-29)
Switched to using the result from the compile-time configuration for R to determine big or little endian (as needed
Added a new test (and test validation result file) for a complete save-reload cycle and comparison
CRANberries also provides 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.
