Another Rblpapi release, now at version 0.3.8, arrived on CRAN yesterday. 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 eight release since the package first appeared on CRAN in 2016. This release wraps up a few smaller documentation and setup changes, but also includes an improvement to the (less frequently-used) subscription mode which Whit cooked up on the weekend. Details below:
Changes in Rblpapi version 0.3.8 (2018-01-20)
The Travis CI script was updated to use
run.sh(Dirk in #226).
install_name_toolinvocation under macOS was corrected (@spennihana in #232)
blpAuthenticatehelp page has additional examples (@randomee in #252).
The jump in version number was an oversight; this should have been 0.3.7.
And only while typing up these notes do I realize that I fat-fingered the version number. This should have been 0.3.7. Oh well.
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.
