A new version of RcppAPT — our interface from R to the C++ library behind the awesome
apt-cache, … commands and their cache powering Debian, Ubuntu and the like — is now on CRAN.
We changed the package to require C++11 compilation as newer Debian systems with
g++-6 and the current libapt-pkg-dev library cannot build under the C++98 standard which CRAN imposes (and let’s not get into why …). Once set to C++11 we have no issues. We also added more examples to the manual pages, and turned on code coverage.
