Earlier today, Conrad Sanderson released another bug-fix version 3.0.2 for the still fairly recent 3.0.0 version of his excellent Armadillo C++ template library for linear algebra. The new RcppArmadillo release 0.3.0.2 also appeared on CRAN this morning.
Beside Conrad’s bugfix in
Armadillo itself, he also
convinced us to unroll a change imposed by
NDEBUG is now
being defined unconditionally when compiling R packages. In Armadillo’s case,
this suppresses a number of useful things including bounds-checking. So we
now undefine this symbol in the initial RcppArmadillo headers. Users can
still set it manually, and/or define
The short NEWS entry follows below.
Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for 0.3.0.2 relative to 0.3.0.1 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.0.3.0.2 2012-04-19 o Upgraded to Armadillo release 3.0.2 * fixes for handling diagonal matrices o Undefine NDEBUG if it has been set (as R does) as this prevents a number of useful debugging checks. Users can still define it or define ARMA_NO_DEBUG if they want a 'non-development' build
