A bug-fix release 3.900.7 of Armadillo
was provided by Conrad a few days ago. It has been rolled into a new
release 0.3.900.7 which, after a brief delay, is now on href="http://cran.r-project.org/">CRAN and in Debian.

This in turn caused the CRAN package
Amelia to fail, but
some diligent debugging by Conrad (which was much appreciated) revealed that
the error was in fact in

constructor. The corresponding one-character fix had been made in this release.
Another package exhibiting an issue is
unmarked. It needs
to make the target variable of
reshape a matrix object in a
handful of places. I sent the authors a small patch addressing this but have
not yet heard back.
The complete list of changes is below. In the meantime, I have also done
some work on a new
wrap() converters for
sparse matrices; a first implementation is in SVN.
