A few days ago and while we were traveling, an updated release of our random package for truly (hardware-based) random numbers as provided by random.org arrived on CRAN.

Brian Ripley had pointed out to us that some of the curl implementations (which must now be used as https is mandatory at random.org) did not follow redirects. Which was bad luck, given that I had used a shortform https://random.org as opposed to the fuller-length https://wwwrandom.org variant providing the service. This has been rectified, and we used the opportunity to also update the DESCRIPTION and NAMESPACE file as R CMD check --as-cran now mandates more explicit imports.

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