Hi,

is it really necessary to depend with the newest release on such a new version of R?

Is there a forcing technical reason for this?

Otherwise a slightly more conservative approach would IMHO be a bit more tolerable for the (rightfully) quite large user base of the the package.

Best,

Bernd

In the absence of any way to automatically test roxygen2 with previous versions of R, I basically have to keep it bound to the latest version. In this version, I do need R 3.0.2 because of a series of an unfortunate events: I need to use C++ to write the improved line wrapping code, which means I needed Rcpp, and in particular at least Rcpp 0.10.6. This means I needed to use LinkingTo: Rcpp (>=0.10.6) which is only supported in R 3.0.2.
