Release 0.6.8 of digest package is now on CRAN and will get to Debian shortly.
This release opens the door to also providing the digest functionality at the C level to other R packages. Wush Wu is going to use the murmurHash C implementation in his recently-created FeatureHashing package.
We plan to export the other hashing function as well. Another small change attempts to overcome a build limitation on that other largely-irrelevant-but-still-check-by-CRAN OS.
CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version.
