Introducing RcppRedis

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

another new package of mine, appeared on
CRAN a few weeks ago just in time for our
annual R/Finance conference.

And as of today, we also have Windows binaries thanks to generous help from
John Buonagurio who help building the required 32- and 64-bit libraries for
Windows, and Uwe Ligges who now installed them for the
CRAN and
machiness. Binaries for release 0.1.1 should be available within a day.

To describe the package, I also just set up a page about
so rather than repeating everything here I invite you to follow the link.

The ever-so-brief NEWS entry for the two first uploads follows.

Changes in version 0.1.1 (2014-06-09)

  • Now with Windows support thanks to the installation of builds of the hiredis library (created by John Buonagurio) at CRAN / win-builder (thanks to Uwe Ligges)

  • Added support for new command zcount

Changes in version 0.1.0 (2014-05-10)

  • Initial CRAN upload
