A rather boring and otherwise uneventful release 0.9.7 of RcppClassic is now at CRAN. This package provides a maintained version of the otherwise deprecated first Rcpp API; no new projects should use it.

Once again no changes in user-facing code. But this makes it the first package to use the very new and shiny pinp package as the backend for its vignette, now converted to Markdown—see here for this new version. We also updated three sources files for tabs versus spaces as the current g++ version complained (correctly !!) about misleading indents. Otherwise a file src/init.c was added for dynamic registration, the Travis CI runner script was updated to using run.sh from our r-travis fork, and we now strip the library after they have been built. Again, no user code changes.

And no iterate: nobody should use this package. Rcpp is so much better in so many ways—this one is simply available as we (quite strongly) believe that APIs are contracts, and as such we hold up our end of the deal.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there are changes relative to the previous release.

Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
