A new release 0.9.0 of
is now available at CRAN and has
just been uploaded to
Debian. As always, sources are also
available from my
local directory here.

With this release, the older API which we have been referring to as the
classic Rcpp API has been split off into its own new package
RcppClassic to ensure backwards compatibility.
Rcpp will now
contain only the new API.

We also fixes a number a minor bugs and applied a few contributed patches
which extended functionality or documentation as detailed below in the NEWS entry:

0.9.0   2010-12-19

    o   The classic API was factored out into its own package RcppClassic which
        is released concurrently with this version.

    o   If an object is created but not initialized, attempting to use
        it now gives a more sensible error message (by forwarding an
        Rcpp::not_initialized exception to R).

    o   SubMatrix fixed, and Matrix types now have a nested ::Sub typedef.
    o   New unexported function SHLIB() to aid in creating a shared library on
        the command-line or in Makefile (similar to CxxFlags() / LdFlags()).

    o   Module gets a seven-argument ctor thanks to a patch from Tama Ma.

    o   The (still incomplete) QuickRef vignette has grown thanks to a patch
        by Christian Gunning.

    o   Added a sprintf template intended for logging and error messages.

    o   Date::getYear() corrected (where addition of 1900 was not called for); 
        corresponding change in constructor from three ints made as well.

    o   Date() and Datetime() constructors from string received a missing
        conversion to int and double following strptime. The default format
        string for the Datetime() strptime call was also corrected.

    o   A few minor fixes throughout, see ChangeLog.

Thanks to
CRANberries, there is
also a
diff to the previous release 0.8.9.

As always, even fuller details are on the
Rcpp Changelog page and the
Rcpp page which also
leads to the downloads, the
doxygen docs
and zip files of doxygen output for the standard formats.
A local directory has
source and documentation too.
Questions, comments etc should go to the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page
