Release Notes

Fifth beta release - 0.5-2

Main 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.

Please follow the installation instructions in Installing R packages.
An entry point to using rClr is the Quick start on the Documentation page.

This package is a zip file you can install with e.g. R CMD INSTALL. It is only for Windows, and the CLR used is .NET 4.5. The package contains binaries for both 64 and 32 bits.

  • Thanks to my colleagues Rob Bridgart and Justin Hughes for reporting memory leak issues.
  • This release relies for some features on the project R.NET. Kosei is gratefully acknowledged for his ongoing work on R.NET
