A new Armadillo version 3.6.2 came
out yesterday, and the corresponding
version is now on CRAN. Changes are mostky incremental:

Changes in RcppArmadillo version (2013-01-29)

  • Upgraded to Armadillo release Version 3.6.2

    • faster determinant for matrices marked as diagonal or triangular

    • more fine-grained handling of 64 bit integers

  • Added a new example of a Kalman filter implementation in R, and C++
    using Armadillo via RcppArmadillo, complete with timing comparison

Courtesy of
CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report for the
most recent release
As always, more detailed information is on the
RcppArmadillo page.
Questions, comments etc should go to the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page.
