After an usually long hiatus, the RcppExamples package has been updated once more: a new version 0.1.7 is now on CRAN.

The RcppExamples provides a handful of short examples detailing by concrete working examples how to set up basic R data structures in C++. In this version, essentially all files (C++, R as well as manual pages) were refreshed, along with the usual set of small changes to bring the package to current R CMD check standards.

A NEWS extract follows:

#### Changes in RcppExamples version 0.1.7 (2016-01-23)

• All examples were updated to use Rcpp Attributes and (where possible) use const & interfaces.

• Updated DESCRIPTION for current R CMD check standards

• The Rcpp package is now imported rather than depended upon.

• Added README.md as well as .travis.yml.

• Also updated and refreshed all manual pages and R files.

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