The recent releases of Rcpp 0.10.2 and RcppClassic 0.9.3 had one more repercussion. On that dreaded OS, the linker no longer wanted to instantiate a symbol present in both packages; seems to me that the linker in the other two OSs is a little smarter. Anyway — I didn’t fight this but at long last moved all remnands of the long-deprecated older Rcpp API (which is still maintained by package
RcppClassic) out of package RcppExamples and into a new package
And the updated version 0.1.5 of the RcppExamples
package appeared on CRAN and has now been joined by the initial version 0.1.0 of the new
RcppClassicExamples. No code changed were made; manual pages and descriptions where brushed up and that is about it.
