The RcppGSL package provides an interface from R to the GNU GSL using the Rcpp package.

RcppGSL release 0.3.2 is one of several maintenance releases this weekend to fix an issue flagged by CRAN: calls to .Call() sometimes used package= where PACKAGE= was meant. This came up now while the registration mechanism is being reworked.

So RcppGSL was updated too, and we took the opportunity to bring several packaging aspects up to the newest standards, including support for the soon-to-be required registration of routines.

No new code or features were added. The NEWS file entries follow below:

Changes in version 0.3.2 (2017-03-04)

  • In the fastLm function, .Call now uses the correct PACKAGE= argument

  • Added file init.c with calls to R_registerRoutines() and R_useDynamicSymbols(); also use .registration=TRUE in useDynLib in NAMESPACE

  • The skeleton configuration for created packages was updated.

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 issue tickets at the GitHub repo.
