A minor maintenance release of the RcppCNPy package arrived on CRAN this week.
RcppCNPy provides R with read and write access to NumPy files thanks to the cnpy library by Carl Rogers.
There is no code change here. But to process the vignette we rely on knitr which sees Python here and (as of its most recent release) wants the (excellent !!) reticulate package. Which is of course overkill just to process a short pdf document, so we turned this off.
Changes in version 0.2.8 (2018-01-04)
- Vignette sets knitr option
python.reticulate=FALSE to avoid another depedency just for the vignette [CRAN request]
CRANberries also provides a diffstat report for the latest release. As always, feedback is welcome and the best place to start a discussion may be the GitHub issue tickets page.
