Earlier today, a minor update / maintenance release of RcppGSL—our 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
lmfunction. The summary methods now provide more information, and we added a number of new regression tests.
The NEWS file entry follows below:
And courtesy of CRANberries, a summary of the changes to the previous release 0.1.1 is available too.
