A new release of the
BH package
is now on CRAN and its mirrors. BH
provides (a sizeable subset of) the Boost
library for C++, particularly the (large) parts delivered as pure template
headers not requiring linking. See the
BH page for more details.

This release comes from a rewritten build script for the package. We no
longer drive the initial set of Boost
libraries by the requirements of the bigmemory (and
synchronicity) packages, but rather explicitly enumerate an equivalent set of
Boost libraries. This ensures that these
libraries are included completely. We also move the project repository to
this GitHub repo.

The complete list changes follows below.

Changes in version 1.51.0-4 (2014-01-01)

  • Rewritten main package creation script to no longer scan for
    what bigmemory and synchronicity use, but rather
    explicitly copy over an (equivalent) list of explicitly-enumerated
    Boost libraries

  • Repository moved from R-Forge to GitHub, scripts and
    layout adjusted accordingly

  • Besides the implicitly expanded coverage by including the
    complete libraries, we also expanded from
    math/distributions to all of math.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report for the
most recent release.

Comments and suggestions are welcome via the mailing list or issue tracker
still available via the package page at R-Forge.
