cpp11 0.4.7

CRAN release: 2023-12-02

  • Internal changes requested by CRAN to fix invalid format string tokens (@paleolimbot, #345).

cpp11 0.4.6

CRAN release: 2023-08-10

  • R >=3.5.0 is now required to use cpp11. This is in line with (and even goes beyond) the tidyverse standard of supporting the previous 5 minor releases of R. It also ensures that R_UnwindProtect() is available to avoid C++ memory leaks (#332).

  • cpp11::preserved.release_all() has been removed. This was intended to support expert developers on R <3.5.0 when cpp11 used a global protection list. Since cpp11 no longer uses a global protection list and requires R >=3.5.0, it is no longer needed. As far as we can tell, no package was actively using this (#332).

  • cpp11 now creates one protection list per compilation unit, rather than one global protection list shared across compilation units and across packages. This greatly reduces the complexity of managing the protection list state and should make it easier to make changes to the protection list structure in the future without breaking packages compiled with older versions of cpp11 (#330).

  • Nested calls to cpp11::unwind_protect() are no longer supported or encouraged. Previously, this was something that could be done for performance improvements, but ultimately this feature has proven to cause more problems than it is worth and is very hard to use safely. For more information, see the new vignette("FAQ") section titled “Should I call cpp11::unwind_protect() manually?” (#327).

  • The features and bug fixes from cpp11 0.4.4 have been added back in.

cpp11 0.4.5

CRAN release: 2023-07-20

  • On 2023-07-20, cpp11 was temporarily rolled back to 0.4.3 manually by CRAN due to a bug in 0.4.4 which we could not immediately fix due to the cpp11 maintainer being on vacation.

cpp11 0.4.4

CRAN release: 2023-06-30

  • Davis Vaughan is now the maintainer.

  • as_doubles() and as_integers() now propagate missing values correctly (#265, #319).

  • Fixed a performance issue related to nested unwind_protect() calls (#298).

  • Minor performance improvements to the cpp11 protect code. (@kevinushey)

  • cpp_register() gains an argument extension= governing the file extension of the src/cpp11 file. By default it’s .cpp, but .cc is now supported as well (#292, @MichaelChirico)

cpp11 0.4.3

CRAN release: 2022-10-12

  • Modernized the GitHub Actions workflows and updated some internal tests to better align with changes in those workflows and the latest version of R (#279).

  • cpp_source() errors on non-existent file (#261).

  • cpp_register() is quiet by default when R is non interactive (#289).

  • updated test to adapt to changes in R 4.2.1 (#290).

cpp11 0.4.2

CRAN release: 2021-11-30

  • Romain François is now the maintainer.

cpp11 0.4.1

CRAN release: 2021-11-03

  • Fix crash related to unwind protect optimization (#244)

cpp11 0.4.0

CRAN release: 2021-09-22

New Features

  • New opt-in message formatting with the {fmt} C++ library for cpp11::messages() cpp11::stop() and cpp11::warning(). Set the CPP11_USE_FMT macro to use this feature in your package. (@sbearrows, #169, #208)
  • New as_double() and as_integer() methods to coerce integers to doubles and doubles to integers to doubles (@sbearrows, #46)
  • cpp11::matrix iterators can now be used either row-wise or column-wise (the default) depending on the user’s choice (@alyst, #229)

Improvements and fixes

  • Read-only matrix accessors are now marked const (#234)
  • writable::r_vector default constructors now return a 0 length vector when converted to SEXP (#166)
  • Read-only r_vector constructors now disallow implicit construction with named arguments (#237)
  • Read-only r_vector.attr() methods now return const objects, so it is a compile time error to try to assign to them (#237)
  • Fixed + and += operators of r_vector::[const_]iterator to conform the iterators concept: += updates the iterator, and + returns the updated copy, while keeping the original unchanged (@alyst, #231)
  • Remove undefined behavior when constructing global cpp11::sexps (#224)
  • Removed redundant .Call calls in cpp11.cpp file (@sbearrows, #170)
  • Error messages now output original file name rather than the temporary file name (@sbearrows, #194)
  • cpp_register() now includes attribute_visible in the init function, so packages compiled with C_VISIBILITY will find the init function.
  • Fixed bug when running cpp_source() on the same file more than once (@sbearrows, #202)
  • Allow cpp11 decorators of the form cpp11::linking_to (@sbearrows, #193)
  • Removed internal instances of cpp11::stop() and replaced with C++ exceptions (@sbearrows, #203)
  • Names of named lists are now resized along with the list elements (@sbearrows, #206)

cpp11 0.3.1

CRAN release: 2021-06-25

  • Fix stringop-truncation warning from generated wrapping code.

cpp11 0.3.0

New functions and features

  • New x.empty() method to check if a vector is empty (@sbearrows, #182)
  • New x.named() method to check if a vector is named (@sbearrows, #186)
  • New na() free function to return the NA sentinels for R objects (@sbearrows, #179)

Major fixes

  • Memory no longer inadvertently leaks when move constructing vectors (#173)

Minor improvements and fixes

cpp11 0.2.7

CRAN release: 2021-03-29

  • Fix a transient memory leak for functions that return values from cpp11::unwind_protect() and cpp11::safe (#154)
  • cpp_source() now gets an argument dir to allow customized temporary directory to store generated source files. It makes it easier to debug C++ source files in non-package project via source mapping. (@renkun-ken, #156)

cpp11 0.2.6

CRAN release: 2021-01-29

  • cpp_register() now uses symbols exclusively in the .Call() interface. This allows it to be more robust in interactive use with the pkgload package.

cpp11 0.2.5

CRAN release: 2021-01-12

  • cpp_source() gains a cxx_std argument to control which C++ standard is used. This allows you to use code from C++14 and later standards with cpp_source(). (#100)
  • The cpp11 knitr engine now allows you to set the cxx_std chunk option to control the C++ standard used.
  • cpp_source() now has much more informative error messages when compilation fails (#125, #139)
  • cpp_source() now uses a unique name for the DLL, so works when run multiple times on the same source file on Windows (#143)
  • writable::list_of<T> now supports modification of vectors as intended (#131).
  • Errors when running tools::package_native_routine_registration_skeleton() are no longer swallowed (#134)
  • cpp_source() can now accept a source file called cpp11.cpp (#133)
  • named_arg now explicitly protect their values, avoiding protection issues when using large inputs. tidyverse/readr#1145
  • r_string(std::string) now uses Rf_mkCharLenCE() instead of Rf_mkChar(), which avoids the performance cost of checking the string length.
  • Writable vector classes now properly set their lengths as intended when being copied to a read only class (#128).

cpp11 0.2.4

CRAN release: 2020-11-05

  • The preserve list is now more robust to invalid values, such as when the XPtr has no address or if non-xptr’s are stored in the option. This fixes errors when reloading packages using cpp11 and RStudio’s session restores.
  • The preserve list is now more robust to invalid values, such as null pointers when the XPtr is serialized. This situation occurs during ‘Install and Restart’ in RStudio (#121)

cpp11 0.2.3

CRAN release: 2020-10-14

  • r_vector::const_iterator::operator* is now a const method (#113, @bkietz, @xhochy)
  • The preserve list is now stored in an XPtr, rather than an environment, to avoid issues when serializing the preserve environment, which happens implicitly when RStudio or RStudio Cloud saves all options when resuming a session (#116)

cpp11 0.2.2

CRAN release: 2020-10-01

  • r_bool added as an adapter between bool and Rboolean values (#57, @bkietz)

  • data_frame() objects now have the number of rows correctly set as real length, not the reserved length (#91)

  • Fixed potential memory leak in cpp11::writable classes.

cpp11 0.2.1

CRAN release: 2020-08-11

  • Ensures backwards compatibility with code generation from cpp11 0.1.0 (#88)

  • push_back() now works more consistently with named arguments (#86)

cpp11 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2020-08-10

New features

Minor improvements and fixes

  • as_cpp<E>() now works with enumeration types (#52, @bkietz)

  • as_cpp<int>() and as_cpp<double>() now implicitly coerce between all 3 types of single NA values (#53).

  • list::const_iterator::operator*() added so iterators could be used on list objects (#60, @romainfrancois)

  • safe[] can now work with functions that return any type (#70, @bkietz)

  • The END_CPP macro now includes a catch(...) block to catch all C++ exceptions that do not inherit from std::exception (#47).

  • Improve consistency of inserting NA values in r_string objects (#45)

  • Added a file to track changes to the package.

cpp11 0.1.0

CRAN release: 2020-07-10
