digest creates hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the
spookyhash algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects. It is a fairly widely-used package (currently listed at 889k monthly downloads with 255 direct reverse dependencies and 7340 indirect reverse dependencies) as many tasks may involve caching of objects for which it provides convenient general-purpose hash key generation.
This release is a one issue fix. Aaron Lun noticed some issues when
spookyhash is used in streaming mode. Kendon Bell, who also contributed
spookyhash quickly found the issue which is a simple oversight. This was worth addressing in new release, so I pushed 0.6.25.
