A new minor release with version number 0.6.11 of the digest package is now on CRAN and in Debian.

It is mostly a maintenance release. Sometime last spring we were asked to consider changing the license GPL-2 to GPL (>= 2). Having gotten agreement of all copyright holders, this could finally happen. But it so happens that the last yay just after the last release, so it took another cycle. In other changes, I also made the makeRaw function fully generic and added documentation. The pull request by Jim Hester to add covr support was finally folded in, leading as always to some gaming and improvement of the coverage metrics. A polite request by Radford Neal to support a nosharing option in base::serialize was also honoured; this should help for use with his interesting pqR variant of R.

CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version.
