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 (large) parts delivered as pure template headers not requiring linking. See the BH page for more details. This release provides our first update relative to the Boost tarballs we started with. It moves us from 1.51.0 (which was getting a little long in the tooth) to 1.54.0. This is just about the first time ever that I didn’t package something straight from the current release (now 1.55.0). My aim was to to balance the oh, shiny, new aspect with some stability. Comments welcome–maybe I will go to the bleeding edge next time. As before, the CRAN is created by running
bcpover a number of selected components of Boost. If you’d like to see additional ones include, please do get in touch too. Before uploading, I also tested against all of these sixteen CRAN dependents I could quickly test on my server given the installed dependencies there. The complete list changes follows below.
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 at the GitHub repo.
