The much-appreciated feed of changes to NEWS.Rd list this today :
‘R CMD check’ now checks for ‘.C()’, ‘.Call()’, ‘.External()’ and
‘.Fortran()’ calls in other packages, and gives a warning on those found from
R itself (which are not part of the API and change without notice: many will
changed for R 3.0.0).
Could this be clarified/rewritten? I honestly cannot make out what it is
supposed to say, apart from inferring that use of the API via these functions
will be patrolled more strongly.
