A few days ago, version 0.2.1 of
interface package between
R and the
GNU GSL using our
Rcpp package for
seamless R and C++ integration—appeared on
CRAN making it the first release in
And it turned that this version tickled an obscure and long-dormant bug under
clang which was found on OS X Mavericks—which Kevin Ushey
consequently squashed. So this is now reflected in version 0.2.2 which just
arrived on CRAN.
Besides the bugfix, a few things were modernized to reflect capabilities
of Rcpp 0.11.0
and later. The releases also contain a few changes that had accumulated
since the previous release in 2012 such as an additional example using
B-splines, and use of updated vignette build options provided by R.
The NEWS file entries follows below:
Changes in version 0.2.2 (2014-05-31)
A subtle bug (tickled only by clang on some OS versions) in vector and matrix view initialization was corrected by Kevin Ushey
Changes in version 0.2.1 (2014-05-26)
Added new example based on B-splines example in GSL manual illustrating simple GSL use via Rcpp attributes
Vignette compilation has been reverted to using highlight since version 0.4.2 or greater can be used as a vignette engine (with R 3.0.* or later).
Vignette compilation is now being done by
R CMD buildas R 3.0.0 supports different vignette engines, so the vignette build process has been simplified. A convenience helper script has also been added for command-line builds.
Unit tests now use
cxxfunction()from the inline package
DESCRIPTIONfile now uses
Suggests: Rcpp(instead of
Depends: Rcpp) to permit building of the vignette
The package now takes advantage of the simplified build process available with Rcpp (>= 0.11.0)
Similar updates to the build process were made for the example package included with RcppGSL
