Hot on the heels of RcppArmadillo release 0.2.4 a few days ago comes a new release 0.2.5 which is now on CRAN. RcppArmadillo makes it easy to write highly efficient and highly readable C++ code for linear algebra (based on Armadillo) in R extensions (using Rcpp for the interface).
This release upgrades the included Armadillo version to Conrad’s just-released version 0.9.60. This overcomes some of minor issues we had with ‘older’ compilers such as g++ 4.2.x with x being 1 or 2. No other changes were made from our end.
The short NEWS file extract follows:
