A few days ago, Erik released a new version of his Annoy library — a small, fast, and lightweight C++ template header library for approximate nearest neighbours — which now no longer requires Boost. While I don’t mind Boost (actually, quite the opposite), it appears to have been a blocker in getting the Python part of Annoy over to the world of python3.

And with a new Annoy out, I updated RcppAnnoy to it. In the process I got another pull request into Annoy (use R’s RNG rather than rand() which R CMD check really dislikes).

This new package is now on CRAN.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release.

More detailed information is on the RcppAnnoy page page.
