Conrad Sanderson has released a new major version 3.0.0 of his excellent
Armadillo C++ template library for
linear algebra. A corresponding new release 0.3.0 of
RcppArmadillo
is now on CRAN.
This follows four pre-releases of Armadillo which we packaged as before, but
for reasons
detailed in another post
did not send to CRAN.

All that said, here are the NEWS entries for all release since the last
non-test release:

          * faster element access in fixed size matrices
          * better detection of vector expressions by sum(), cumsum(),
            prod(), min(), max(), mean(), median(), stddev(), var() 
          * expressions X=A.i()*B and X=inv(A)*B are automatically converted

Courtesy of
CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report
for 0.3.0 relative to 0.2.36
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.
