Earlier this week, Conrad released Armadillo 7.600.1. The corresponding RcppArmadillo release 0.7.600.1.0 is now on CRAN and in Debian. This follows several of rounds testing at our end with a full reverse-dependency of a pre-release version followed by another full reverse-depency check. Which was of course followed by CRAN testing for two more days.
Armadillo is a powerful and expressive C++ template library for linear algebra aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use with a syntax deliberately close to a Matlab. RcppArmadillo integrates this library with the R environment and language–and is widely used by (currently) 298 other packages on CRAN — an increase of 24 just since the last CRAN release of 0.7.500.0.0 in October!
Changes in this release relative to the previous CRAN release 0.7.500.0.0 are as follows:
Changes in RcppArmadillo version 0.7.600.1.0 (2016-12-16)
Upgraded to Armadillo release 7.600.1 (Coup d’Etat Deluxe)
