Last Monday, Conrad Sanderson released version 1.2.10 of his most excellent Armadillo templated C++ library for linear algebra; I followed up the same day with version 0.2.19 of our RcppArmadillo wrapper for R based on our Rcpp library. However, the chief gatekeeper at CRAN took a well-deserved vacation last week, and with that it arrived only today on CRAN.

The short NEWS file extract follows below containing just Conrad’s entry for 1.2.0. No further changes from our side (and the benchmark comparison between R, compiled R and Rcpp for computing a VAR(1) dataset which I blogged about yesterday is only in SVN and will be in the next release.)

0.2.19	2011-04-18

    o	Upgraded to Armadillo version 1.2.0 "Unscrupulous Carbon Emitter"

	  * Added ability to use Blas & Lapack libraries with capitalised
	    function names 
	  * Reduction of pedantic compiler warnings

And courtesy of CRANberries, here are the diffs to the previous release.
