[Bioc-devel] RcppAnnoy changed in CRAN from 0.0.14 to 0.0.15, and might have broken some packages

You can't use a package version other than the current release, so BiocNeighbors needs to be updated (assuming that's the problem); I'm sure it will be. Martin

    When installing BiocNeighbors (1.4.1, latest release from Bioconductor
    version 3.10) from source on linux I noticed the issue as a few hours
    ago it all worked fine but now it doesn't. Locally, I noticed that I
    had to update from RcppAnnoy 0.0.14 to 0.0.15, and while at my macOS I
    can install the BiocNeighbors 1.4.1 binary, I did the actual tests at
    https://github.com/LTLA/BiocNeighbors/issues/10 and noticed that
    RcppAnnoy's change lead to this. I have no idea how RcppAnnoy works,
    but well, maybe if you use it in your package you do.
    Now I need to google how to set on my DESCRIPTION to use the CRAN
    archived version of RcppAnnoy 0.0.14 that you can install with
    packageurl <- "https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/RcppAnnoy/RcppAnnoy_0.0.14.tar.gz"
    install.packages(packageurl, repos=NULL, type="source")
