RcppArmadillo 0.2.10

November 26, 2010

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Conrad Sanderson released version 1.0.0 of Armadillo, his templated C++ library for linear algebra, earlier this week. So congratulations to Conrad on reaching 1.0.0! I folded his version 1.0.0 into a new release 0.2.10 of RcppArmadillo, our Rcpp-based integration into R. Other small changes comprises a small fix to the build process, and additional output in the summary() function for the fastLm function.

The short NEWS file extract follows, also containing Conrad's entry for 1.0.0:

0.2.10  2010-11-25

    o   Upgraded to Armadillo 1.0.0 "Antipodean Antileech"

         * After 2 1/2 years of collaborative development, we are proud to
           release the 1.0 milestone version. 
         * Many thanks are extended to all contributors and bug reporters.

    o   R/RcppArmadillo.package.skeleton.R: Updated to no longer rely on GNU
        make for builds of packages using RcppArmadillo
    o   summary() for fastLm() objects now returns r.squared and adj.r.squared

And courtesy of CRANberries, here is the diff to the previous release 0.2.9:
