Following on yesterday’s announcement of RcppCCTZ, what is the only thing better than another date, time, or timezones library package? One that works on Solaris too 🙂

Bradley White from CCTZ upstream spotted the failed compilation on the machine in Oxford and suggested a quick fix. Jeroen quickly tested what I had put into a branch, and there we have it: version 0.0.2 which now builds everywhere.

Changes (for both releases) are summarized here:

#### Changes in version 0.0.2 (2015-12-02)

• Additional #ifdef statements suggested by Bradley White in CCTZ ticket #5 permitting compilation on Solaris – with thanks to Jeroen for testing our branch.

#### Changes in version 0.0.1 (2015-12-01)

• Package is functional and provides examples.

We now also have a diff to the previous version thanks to CRANberries.
