The dqrng package is now available from CRAN. It is possible to install it using

install.packages("dqrng")

Besides this simplified installation the included RNGs have been updated: Xorshift128+ and Xorshift1024* have been removed in favor of the new Xorshiro256+, c.f. http://xoshiro.di.unimi.it/. Using the provided RNGs from R is unchanged:

library(dqrng)
dqRNGkind("Xoroshiro128+")
dqset.seed(42)
dqrunif(5, min = 2, max = 10)
## [1] 4.498747 9.500660 2.457009 5.249195 2.370585
dqrnorm(5, mean = 3, sd = 5)
## [1]  5.748100 -4.368370 -1.231515 -7.552863  8.959892
dqrexp(5, rate = 4)
## [1] 0.002043171 0.261604407 0.132934079 0.048892818 0.549762841
