Time for a new release of Rblpapi — version 0.3.6 is now on CRAN. Rblpapi provides a direct interface between R and the Bloomberg Terminal via the C++ API provided by Bloomberg Labs (but note that a valid Bloomberg license and installation is required).

This is the seventh release since the package first appeared on CRAN last year. This release brings a very nice new function lookupSecurity() contributed by Kevin Jin as well as a number of small fixes and enhancements. Details below:

Changes in Rblpapi version 0.3.6 (2017-04-20)

  • bdh can now store in double preventing overflow (Whit and John in #205 closing #163)

  • bdp documentation has another ovveride example

  • A new function lookupSecurity can search for securities, optionally filtered by yellow key (Kevin Jin and Dirk in #216 and #217 closing #215)

  • Added file init.c with calls to R_registerRoutines() and R_useDynamicSymbols(); also use .registration=TRUE in useDynLib in NAMESPACE (Dirk in #220)

  • getBars and getTicks can now return data.table objects (Dirk in #221)

  • bds has improved internal protect logic via Rcpp::Shield (Dirk in #222)

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the this release. As always, more detailed information is on the Rblpapi page. Questions, comments etc should go to the issue tickets system at the GitHub repo.
