A new release of our random package for truly (hardware-based) random numbers as provided by random.org is now on CRAN.
The R 3.2.0 release brought the change to use an internal
method="libcurl" which we are using if available; else the
curl::curl() method added in release 0.2.3 is used. We are also a little more explicit about closing connection, and added really basic regression tests — as it is hard to test hardware-based RNGs draws.
Courtesy of CRANberries comes a diffstat report for this release. Current and previous releases are available here as well as on CRAN.
