A new release of my random package for truly (hardware-based) random numbers as provided by random.org is now on CRAN.

The main change is a switch to the curl() function from the eponymous package by Jeroen Ooms. This was caused by random.org now using https instead of http, annd the fact that te url() function from R does not cope well with the redirect. Besides this (enforced) change, everything else remains the same.

Courtesy of CRANberries comes a diffstat report for this release. Current and previous releases are available here as well as on CRAN.
