Rcpp 0.9.4 have been on CRAN for a few days. I didn't announce it immediately
as we were waiting for the Journal of Statistical Software to update its page
to show our Rcpp paper as Vol 40(8):

    http://www.jstatsoft.org/v40	Vol 40

    http://www.jstatsoft.org/v40/i08	Vol 40, Issue 8 on Rcpp

This happened on Thursday, and I forgot to announce it here -- my bad!

The release actually new code too in a new feature for even easier Modules
loading, as well as some bug / build fixes required by g++ 4.5 and 4.6
Anyway, the NEWS entry is below, and a little more is at a blog entry I wrote


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
