Have a look at the SVN archive for Rcpp on R-Forge and at Rcpp 0.7.1 which should be on CRAN "soon" (within days). You may like what Romain added as class RObject; there is more coming for environments etc, and external pointers already got added.

That said, we are trying to maintain the fine balance of keeping the old interface of Rcpp maintained (as it is being used in a number of places, and as I feel quite strongly about maintaining published interfaces) yet add a few 'interesting' things which Romain had been pushing real well for our use in RProtoBuf and other places.

There is also a mailing list for Rcpp-dev (with the usual subscribe-to-post) tricks.
