A new release just went out -- see below for the relevant entry from NEWS.

Cheers, Dirk

0.8.6   2010-09-09

    o	new macro RCPP_VERSION and Rcpp_Version to allow conditional compiling
        based on the version of Rcpp
           #if defined(RCPP_VERSION) && RCPP_VERSION >= Rcpp_Version(0,8,6)

    o   new sugar functions for statistical distributions (d-p-q-r functions)
	with distributions : unif, norm, gamma, chisq, lnorm, weibull, logis,
	f, pois, binom, t, beta.

    o   new ctor for Vector taking size and function pointer so that for example

    	   NumericVector( 10, norm_rand )

	generates a N(0,1) vector of size 10

    o   added binary operators for complex numbers, as well as sugar support 

    o   more sugar math functions: sqrt, log, log10, exp, sin, cos, ...

    o	started new vignette Rcpp-quickref : quick reference guide of Rcpp API
        (still work in progress)

    o	various patches to comply with solaris/suncc stricter standards

    o	minor enhancements to ConvolutionBenchmark example

    o	simplified src/Makefile to no longer require GNU make; packages using
        Rcpp still do for the compile-time test of library locations
