Rcpp 0.9.9 is now on CRAN; below is the short blog post.  This is mostly a
brown-bag release as we messed things up a little in 0.9.8 (if you depends on
long and unsigned long vectors, that is). 

    Rcpp 0.9.9                                                                       
    Release 0.9.9 of Rcpp is now on CRAN and getting into Debian too. This is mainly 
    a bug fix release: our addition of int64 support in 0.9.8 came at the expense of 
    support for long and unsigned long which broke some packages using Rcpp, and     
    expecting those types. Ooops.                                                    
    The complete NEWS entry for 0.9.9; more details are in the ChangeLog file in the 
    package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.                                          
     0.9.9   2012-12-25                                                              
         o   Reverting the 'int64' changes from release 0.9.8 which adversely        
             affect packages using Rcpp We will re-apply the 'int64' changes in a    
             way which should cooperate more easily with 'long' and 'unsigned long'. 
         o   Unit test output directory fallback changed to use Rcpp.Rcheck          
         o   Conditioned two unit tests to not run on Windows where they now break   
             whereas they passed before, and continue to pass on other OSs           
    Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous release       
    0.9.8. 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
