We generally use _released versions_ of R ourselves. 

CRAN tests on current releases of R, futures releases of R and, for Windows,
the previous release of R, see eg here




which however does not show which Rcpp version is pulled in -- but likely
0.10.5 as we now add a requirement in Rcpp 0.10.6 that R (>= 3.0.0) [ which
is needed solely for vignette processing ]

So in short:  keep your installation of R and packages current, and you
should be fine.
