A new release 0.2.11 of RInside is now on CRAN. RInside provides a set of convenience classes which facilitate embedding of R inside of C++ applications and programs, using the classes and functions provided by the Rcpp R and C++ integration package.

This release, the first in fourteen months, fixes one important initialization issue created by the recent Rcpp 0.11.0 release, adds a few other changes related to that release and improves a number of small points such as new or improved examples.

The NEWS extract below has more details.

Changes in RInside version 0.2.11 (2014-02-11)

  • Updated for Rcpp 0.11.0:

    • Updated initialization by assigning global environment via pointer only after R itself has been initialized – with special thanks to Kevin Ushey for the fix

    • Updated DESCRIPTION with Imports: instead of Depends:

    • Added correspondiing importFrom(Rcpp, evalCpp) to NAMESPACE

    • Noted in all inst/examples/*/Makefile that Rcpp no longer requires a library argument, but left code for backwards compatibility in case 0.11.0 is not yet installed.

  • Added --vanilla --slave to default arguments for R initialization

  • Added a few more explicit #include statements in the qt example which Qt 5.1 now appears to require – with thanks to Spencer Behling for the patch

  • Added new MPI example with worker functions and RInside instance, kindly contributed by Nicholas Pezolano and Martin Morgan

CRANberries also provides a short report with changes from the previous release. More information is on the RInside page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the Rcpp R-Forge page.
