A new version 0.4.8 of RQuantLib reached CRAN and Debian. This release was triggered by a CRAN request for an update to the
configure.ac script which was easy enough (and which, as it happens, did not result in changes in the
configure script produced). I also belatedly updated the internals of RQuantLib to follow suit to an upstream change in QuantLib. We now seamlessly switch between
shared_ptr<> from Boost and from C++11 – Luigi wrote about the how and why in an excellent blog post that is part of a larger (and also excellent) series of posts on QuantLib internals.
In other news, we finally have a macOS binary package on CRAN. After several rather frustrating months of inaction on the pull request put together to enable this, it finally happened last week. Yay. So CRAN currently has an 0.4.7 macOS binary and should get one based on this release shortly. With Windows restored with the 0.4.7 release, we are in the best shape we have been in years. Yay and three cheers for Open Source and open collaboration models!
The complete set of changes is listed below:

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the this release. As always, more detailed information is on the RQuantLib page. Questions, comments etc should go to the new rquantlib-devel mailing list. Issue tickets can be filed at the GitHub repo.
