The RVowpalWabbit package update is the third of four upgrades requested by CRAN, following RcppSMC 0.1.5 and RcppGSL 0.3.2.
This package being somewhat raw, the change was simple and just meant converting the single entry point to using Rcpp Attributes — which addressed the original issue in passing.
No new code or features were added.
We should mention that is parallel work ongoing in a higher-level package interfacing the
vw binary — rvw — as well as plan to redo this package via the external libraries. In that sounds interesting to you, please get in touch.
More information is on the RVowpalWabbit page. Issues and bugreports should go to the GitHub issue tracker.
