RcppArmadillo 0.3.800.0

March 2, 2013

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

A new Armadillo version 3.800.0 is
now out. Conrad picked a new numbering scheme to coincide with the
relicensing from LGPL to MPL 2.0. The new version 0.3.800.0 of the corresponding
package (which still uses GPL 2 or later) is now on CRAN. It also contains the updated version of our paper as
the package vignette.

The summary of the main changes follows:
