RStan Transition Periods
rstan package depends on the
StanHeaders package. When there is a new Stan release, the
StanHeaders package is uploaded to CRAN first, which may mean that it is incompatible with the version of
rstan on CRAN. Recent versions of R should state that there is a newer version of
rstan available and ask if you would like to install it from source. Choose yes. If that succeeds, you can go on to How to Use RStan. If that fails, you can either downgrade your
StanHeaders from archived CRAN sources or upgrade your
rstan using a provisional version of the package(s).
install.packages("https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/StanHeaders/StanHeaders_2.11.0.tar.gz", repos = NULL)
At this point, the old version of
rstan on CRAN should work but you probably want to upgrade to the new version of
rstan when it becomes available on CRAN in a few days.
