A second maintenance release 0.1.4 of our RcppDE package, following on the heels of the recent 0.1.3. release arrived on CRAN today. RcppDE is a “port” of DEoptim, a popular package for derivative-free optimisation using differential optimization, to C++. By using RcppArmadillo, the code becomes a lot shorter and more legible.
This version changes the package-internal code to use Rcpp Attributes which makes things a little simpler (and possibly more robust as well).
Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the most recent release.
