A new version of RcppGSL is now on CRAN. This package provides an interface from R to the GNU GSL using our Rcpp package.
This follows on the heels on the recent RcppGSL 0.2.3 release and extends the excellent point made by Qiang Kou in a contributed section of the vignette: We now not only allow to turn the GSL error handler off (to not
abort() on error) but do so on package initialisation.
No other user-facing changes were made.
The NEWS file entries follows below:
Changes in version 0.2.4 (2015-01-24)
Two new helper function to turn the default GSL error handler off (and to restore it) were added. The default handler is now turned off when the package is attached so that GSL will no longer abort an R session on error. Users will have to check the error code.
RcppGSL-intro.Rnw vignette was expanded with a short section on the GSL error handler (thanks to Qiang Kou).
Courtesy of CRANberries, a summary of changes to the most recent release is available.
More information is on the RcppGSL page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
