Maximum Entropy Now Supported for Windows

(This article was first published on RTextTools: a machine learning library for text classification - Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

After several weeks trying to find the source of a bug in the maximum entropy library when compiling on Windows, Dirk Eddelbuttel pointed me in the right direction to resolve the issue. Although it required a re-write of the library using the new Rcpp API, maximum entropy now installs on Windows machines when Rtools is installed.

This is significant because now RTextTools has two low-memory algorithms (support vector machines and maximum entropy) working cross-platform. This significantly raises accuracy for Windows users, and simplifies the installation process.
