Yesterday’s release of BH 1.72.0-1 was so much fun we decided to do it again 🙂

More seriously, and as mentioned, we have to do some minor adjustments as required by CRAN. One is to ensure all filenames fit with their full paths into a shorter limit imposed by an ancient tar standard. So I always rename inst/include/boost/numeric/odeint/stepper/generation/karp54_classic.hpp by shortening it to .../karp54_cl.hpp and adjust the one file that includes this internal file. Not a big deal, and done for years.

But this time, and inadvertendly, I also renamed a similarly-named file one directory higher. And it gets included by some other files, which then fail and bark. My thanks to Alexey Shiklomanov for noticing this, letting me know, and testing a fixed package. I now wish his ODE-solving package was already on CRAN so that I’d known sooner 😉 as seemingly of the current 192 reverse dependencies, none are doing ODE maths.

No other changes, and sorry for the double download of both 1.72.0-1 and 1.72.0-2 (if you were fast enough to catch the -1 file).

Via CRANberries, there is a diffstat report relative to the previous release.
