RcppRedis, another new package of mine, appeared on CRAN a few weeks ago just in time for our annual R/Finance conference. And as of today, we also have Windows binaries thanks to generous help from John Buonagurio who help building the required 32- and 64-bit libraries for Windows, and Uwe Ligges who now installed them for the CRAN and win-builder machiness. Binaries for release 0.1.1 should be available within a day. To describe the package, I also just set up a page about RcppRedis so rather than repeating everything here I invite you to follow the link. The ever-so-brief NEWS entry for the two first uploads follows.
