RcppSMC provides Rcpp-based bindings to R for them Sequential Monte Carlo Template Classes (SMCTC) by Adam Johansen described in his JSS article.

RcppSMC release 0.1.5 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.

Hence RcppSMC was updated, 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 RcppSMC version 0.1.5 (2017-03-03)

  • Correct .Call to use PACKAGE= argument

  • DESCRIPTION, NAMESPACE, README.md changes to comply with current R CMD check levels

  • Added file init.c with calls to R_registerRoutines() and R_useDynamicSymbols()

  • Updated .travis.yml file for continuous integration

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

More information is on the RcppSMC page. Issues and bugreports should go to the GitHub issue tracker.
