We are planning a release of Rcpp 0.10.3 "soon".  The current version is
available as


We have tested this current candidate against all CRAN packages we can build
easily on our machines [1].  Apart from one package with a minor bug in its
src/Makevars, all packages build and check fine (and the buggy one does one
src/Makevars is fixed).  

That gives 100% coverage among the packages we can test (easily), and this
merits release-candidate status.  (And the three packages we mentioned last
months as failing are building fine; that was an issue at our end).

However, users may have unreleased packages, or changed packages, or ... so
if you suspect that your package may trigger something: please test. And
tell.  Or test and tell us anyway :)  

Just install it, and run 'R CMD check' on your packages, or any packages that
you suspect may have issues.  We'd love to release in a few days, so any help
with testing would be more than welcome.

Thanks,  Dirk

[1] As in: I don't have all Depends of all packages installed. For example, I
can build 86 of the current 110 packages using R.
