A brand new 0.9.4 release of Rcpp is now on CRAN and Debian.
This version contains an improvement to loading and initialization of Rcpp modules, a bug fix for vectors of factors, another build issue fix as well as (per common practice with JSS) citation information for the article Rcpp: Seamless R and C++ Integration which is now Volume 40, Issue 8 in the Journal of Statistical Software (or JSS for short).
The complete NEWS entry is below; more details are in the ChangeLog file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.
Thanks to CRANberries, there is also a diff to the previous release 0.9.3:0.9.4 2011-04-12 o New R function "loadRcppModules" to load Rcpp modules automatically from a package. This function must be called from the .onLoad function and works with the "RcppModules" field of the package's DESCRIPTION file o The Modules example wrapped the STL std::vector received some editing to disambiguate some symbols the newer compilers did not like o Coercing of vectors of factors is now done with an explicit callback to R's "as.character()" as Rf_coerceVector no longer plays along o A CITATION file for the published JSS paper has been added, and references were added to Rcpp-package.Rd and the different vignettes

As always, even fuller details are on the Rcpp Changelog page and the Rcpp page which also leads to the downloads, the browseable 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
