R Project Updates

Updates from R Core:

  • The declaratation of pythag() in Rmath.h has been removed - it has not been provided since R 2.14.0.

  • C99 functions expm1, hypot and log1p are now required.

  • R CMD INSTALL now correctly sets C++ compiler flags when all source files are in sub-directories of src.

  • scale.default(x, center, scale) now also allows center or scale to be “numeric-alike”, i.e., such that as.numeric(.) coerces them correctly. This also eliminates a wrong error message in such cases.
