RcppGSL 0.2.0

July 23, 2012

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

Earlier today, a minor update / maintenance release of
interface package between
R and the
GNU GSL using our
Rcpp package for
seamless R and C++ integration—arrived on on
CRAN. It contains a number of minor
changes to accomodate changes in the CRAN Policies, as well as a few
extension to the main example fastLm, a faster replacement for
the standard lm function. The summary methods now provide more
information, and we added a number of new regression tests.

The NEWS file entry follows below:

Changes in version 0.2.0 (2012-07-22)
  • summary() for fastLm() now displays more information

  • fastLmPure() now uses same argument order as R’s lm.fit()

  • Added more unit tests for fastLm() and related functions

  • Export and document S3 methods in NAMESPACE and manual page as such

  • Vignettes have been moved to the vignettes/ directory

  • Main vignette renamed to RcppGSL-intro.pdf to use a filename different from the package reference manual

  • NEWS file converted to .Rd format

  • inline support function no longer uses assignInNamespace

And courtesy of
CRANberries, a
summary of the changes to
the previous release 0.1.1
is available too.

More information is on the
RcppGSL page.
Questions, comments etc should go to the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page.
