Fifth beta release - 0.5-2Main changes:
- Fix memory leaks for vectors created in R converted to .NET arrays. Proper memory release is confirmed for at least numeric, integer and character vector types. Part of this exercise, rClr has been accepted by Coverity Scan (https://scan.coverity.com). I acknowledge Coverity for some helpful insights tracking defects in rClr.
- Useful exception handling on MS.NET CLR: print out the details of the innermost exception. This is a big improvement on the unhelpful HRESULT codes previously reported. See the clrTraceback function in the package help.
- The hosting for the Mono runtime on Windows is included in this release. Do note that date-time handling is not passing many tests with the Mono CLR.
