We put RInside 0.2.4 onto CRAN yesterday. It contains some improvements to
the initialization code (with a tip of the hat to Karl and Murray), a number
of cleanups and simplifications in the examples making better use of Rcpp
idioms, two new 'standard' examples as well as the (pretty, if I dare say so)
example I wrote and blogged about last month at


which embeds R in the Qt framework to show a simple 'density slider' example
(similar to what the tcltk and other GUI toolkits show). 

The full NEWS entry for this release is below.

Cheers, Dirk

PS RInside remains busted on Windoze, and I would be most happy to dole out a
   number of karma points if someone with some Windows and R skills went for
   debugging this and actually made a dent... It seems unlikely that Romain
   or I will get there any time soon.
