Rcpp 0.10.6 is now on CRAN. A short blog post is at


and included as text (without links, obviously) below.

It contains a number of bug fixes and cleanups, as well as some new
code. Thanks for everybody for testing, suggestions and input -- and of
course to everybody who contributed code.

Thanks,  Dirk

  Rcpp 0.10.6                                                            
  A new maintenance release 0.10.6 of Rcpp is now on the CRAN network    
  for GNU R; binaries for Debian have been uploaded as well.             
  This version ties up a number of smaller loose ends, but also adds a   
  few new things, particularly John's new exposeClass. Details are as    
  usual in the NEWS extract below, and also in the ChangeLog file in the 
  package and on the Rcpp Changelog page.                                
      Changes in Rcpp version 0.10.6 (2013-10-27)                        
      * Changes in Rcpp API:                                             
           * The function exposeClass takes a description of the         
             constructors, fields and methods to be exposed from a C++   
             class, and writes C++ and R files in the package. Inherited 
             classes can be dealt with, but require data type            
             information. This approach avoids hand-coding module files. 
           * Two missing is<>() templates for CharacterVector and        
             CharacterMatrix have been added, and some tests for is_na() 
             and is_finite() have been corrected thanks to Thomas Tse.   
      * Changes in R code:                                               
           * Export linking helper function LdFlags as well as           
           * Function Rcpp.package.skeleton() no longer passes a         
             namespace argument on to package.skeleton()                 
      * Changes in R setup:                                              
           * Raise requirement for R itself to be version 3.0.0 or later 
             as needed by the vignette processing                        
      * Changes in Rcpp attributes:                                      
           * sourceCpp now correctly binds to Rtools 3.0 and 3.1         
  Thanks to CRANberries, you can also look at a diff to the previous     
  release 0.10.5. 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
