The NEWS file for Rcpp is below

0.9.4   2011-04-12

    o   New R function "loadRcppModules" to load Rcpp modules automatically
        from a package. This function must be called from the .onLoad function
        and works with the "RcppModules" field of the package's DESCRIPTION file

    o   The Modules example wrapped the STL std::vector received some editing
        to disambiguate some symbols the newer compilers did not like

    o   Coercing of vectors of factors is now done with an explicit callback
        to R's "as.character()" as Rf_coerceVector no longer plays along

    o   A CITATION file for the published JSS paper has been added, and 
        references were added to Rcpp-package.Rd and the different vignettes

Thanks,  Dirk
