In the course of preparation for the higher-performance R via C++ course I gave in Zuerich last month, I overhauled this package, its embedded package (!!) showing how to build a package which uses R, C++ and the GSL (and which can serve as a fine example of how to build and R and C++ package using an external library), and also overhauled the vignette which discusses all these aspect. All examples now consistently use Rcpp Attributes.
The NEWS file entries follows below:
Changes in version 0.2.5 (2015-07-05)
colnormfunction in the included example package was rewritten to use Rcpp Attributes, the example package was updated and its version number increased to 0.0.3.
The unit tests also use the updated version of the example package.
The package, and the included example package, were updated throughout to conform to the current
R CMD checkstandards.
The RcppGSL-intro vignette was updated throughout.
The Travis CI integration now uses r-cran-* packages which leads to faster tests.
