duckdb 0.10.1.9001

  • Merge branch ‘cran-0.10.1’.

duckdb 0.10.1.9000

  • Merge branch ‘cran-0.10.1’.

duckdb 0.10.1

CRAN release: 2024-04-02

Features

  • Fix shutdown semantics for the driver object created by duckdb(). A database file is closed (and available to be opened from another session) after the last connection that uses this file calls dbDisconnect() . The shutdown argument to dbDisconnect() or the duckdb_shutdown() functions are no longer necessary. Two database connections from the same R session can access the same file concurrently in read-write mode (#124).

Bug fixes

  • Don’t run tests that invoke re2 by default (#121, #127).

  • Fix compilation for R 4.0 and R 4.1, regression introduced in v0.10.0. Using librstrtmgr.a from UCRT build of rtools40 (#130).

Internal

  • The C++ core is now vendored commit by commit, once every five minutes. Vendoring stops if R CMD check fails or if a previously unreleased tag is reached.

  • New maintainer: Kirill Müller.

Continuous integration

  • Add rhub2 workflow.

duckdb 0.10.0

CRAN release: 2024-03-13
