Now on CRAN is version 0.9.13 of Rcpp, essentially another brown-bag bug fix
release for the same issue I addressed incompletely in 0.9.12 earlier this
The announcement blog post is below; its versions with actual hyperlinks is
The bug-fix in version 0.9.12 of Rcpp turned out to be incomplete, so a new
version 0.9.13 is now on CRAN and will get to Debian shortly.
The Rcpp::Enviroment constructor is now properly fixed (using the global
environment as a default value). As well, a new #define was created to detect the
clang++ compiler before/after version 3.0.0 as one exceptions header changed
location. Unit tests files were also once more updated.
The complete NEWS entry for 0.9.13 is below; more details are in the ChangeLog
file in the package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.
o Truly corrected Rcpp::Environment class by having default constructor
use the global environment, and removing the default argument of
global environment from the SEXP constructor
o Added tests for clang++ version to include bits/exception_defines.h
for versions 3.0 or higher (similar to g++ 4.6.0 or later), needed to
include one particular exceptions header
o Made more regression tests conditional on the RunAllRcppTests to come
closer to the CRAN mandate of running tests in sixty seconds
o Updated unit test wrapper tests/doRUnit.R as well as unitTests/runTests.R
Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous release 0.9.12.
As always, even fuller details are on the Rcpp Changelog page and the Rcpp page
which also leads to the downloads, the browseable doxygen docs and zip files of
doxygen output for the standard formats. A local directory has source and
documentation too. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing
list off the R-Forge page
