RcppArmadillo 0.2.19

April 24, 2011

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Last Monday, Conrad Sanderson released version 1.2.10 of his most excellent
Armadillo templated C++ library for
linear algebra; I followed up the same day with version 0.2.19 of our
wrapper for R based on
our Rcpp
library. However, the chief gatekeeper at CRAN took
a well-deserved vacation last week, and with that it arrived only today on

The short NEWS file extract follows below containing just Conrad’s entry for
1.2.0. No further changes from our side (and the benchmark comparison between
R, compiled R and Rcpp
for computing a VAR(1) dataset which I
blogged about yesterday
is only in SVN and will be in the next release.)

0.2.19	2011-04-18

    o	Upgraded to Armadillo version 1.2.0 "Unscrupulous Carbon Emitter"

	  * Added ability to use Blas & Lapack libraries with capitalised
	    function names 
	  * Reduction of pedantic compiler warnings

And courtesy of
CRANberries, here are
diffs to the previous release.
