A new maintenance release, now at version 0.9.11, of the RcppClassic package arrived earlier today on CRAN. This package provides a maintained version of the otherwise deprecated initial Rcpp API which no new projects should use as the normal Rcpp API is so much better.
Per another request from CRAN, we updated the source code in four places to no longer use dynamic exceptions specification. This is something C++11 deprecated, and
g++-7 and above now complain about each use. No other changes were made.
CRANberries also reports the changes relative to the previous release.
Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
