Conrad made a first bug-fix release 4.100.2 for Armadillo, his templated C++ library for linear algebra, yesterday. See below for details on the the small set of changes.

This was quickly wrapped up in a new RcppArmadillo release release. I also added some first steps towards turning C++11 on. This can be used now with a pre-release of R 3.1.0, and can be generally activated once R 3.1.0 is released on April 10.

Changes in RcppArmadillo version (2014-03-07)

  • Upgraded to Armadillo release Version 4.100.2

    • fix for handling null vectors by normalise()

    • fix for memory handling by sparse matrices

  • Correct use of [[ depends()]] in skeleton example file

  • Prepare src/Makevars for C++11 support from R 3.1.0 by defining USE_CXX11 which is currently commented out

  • In the Armadillo configuration, turn on C++11 support if USE_CXX11 is defined

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.
