[Rcpp-devel] Interim release Rcpp available via Rcpp Drat

We have a small regression in Rcpp 0.12.8: On old compilers such as the
g++-4.*, Rcpp::stop(txt) no longer returns the proper error messages. It
works with g++-5.* or later, and 'throw std::range_error(txt)' works too.

For those who would rather not alter their error code, or are eg using Travis
with that compiler, an interim release Rcpp -- properly tested via
the usual complete reverse-depends -- is at the Drat repo


which has instructions.  A broader discussion of the issue, demonstrations of
it as well as the fix etc pp are at
