QuantLib 1.4 packages also available for Ubuntu and Windoze

QuantLib release 1.4 came out a couple
of days ago. Sticking with standard practice, I immediately updated the
Debian packages I have been maintaining
for over a dozen years now, and corresponding binaries are available for
Debian flavors
unstable (“sid”)
testing (“jessie”).
I also updated my RQuantLib package
accordingly (though it needed no changes — yay to stable APIs).

However, I also run Ubuntu on a few
machines at work and home, and proceeded to create local packages for both
32-bit (“i386”) and 64-bit (“amd64”) variants of the current release 13.10 (“saucy”). As
these may be of use to others, I am now making these available
here from my box
so that folks can run a current QuantLib version on those machines.

Lastly, Brian Ripley was kind enough to also fire up his cross-compilation
setup on his Linux box to create similar Windows binaries, These are e.g. used on
CRAN and by the
win-builder service to compile the
RQuantLib CRAN
Windows builds of RQuantLib. That corresponding archive file can be obtained as
this short page for details.
My thanks to Brian for helping with this.

I hope this may be useful to the few people wishing to compile and/or extend
RQuantLib and
