A new minor upstream release 4.100 of the Armadillo templated C++ library for linear algebra was finalised by Conrad yesterday. I rolled up the corresponding RcppArmadillo release 0.4.100.0 which is now on CRAN and will go to Debian shortly.
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.
