The third update in the 0.12.* series of Rcpp arrived on the CRAN network for GNU R earlier today, and has been pushed to Debian. It follows the 0.12.0 release from late July, the 0.12.1 release in September, and the 0.12.2 release in November making it the seventh release at the steady bi-montly release frequency. This release is somewhat more of a maintenance release addressing a number of small bugs and nuisances without adding any new features.
Rcpp has become the most popular way of enhancing GNU R with C or C++ code. As of today, 553 packages on CRAN depend on Rcpp for making analytical code go faster and further. That is up by more than fourty packages from the last release in November.
Once again, we have new first-time contributors. Kazuki Fukui corrected an issue he encountered when having CLion re-formatted some code for him. Joshua Pritikin corrected a constructor initialization. Of course, we also had several pull reports from regular contributors — see below for a detailed list of changes extracted from the

Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous release. As always, even fuller details are on the Rcpp Changelog page and the Rcpp page which also leads to the downloads page, the browseable doxygen docs and zip files of doxygen output for the standard formats. A local directory has source and documentation too. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
