The fifth update of the 3.6.x release of simmer, the Discrete-Event Simulator for R, is on CRAN. This release extends the attributes API by allowing users to set/get multiple attributes at once (a pretty straightforward change as well as useful; I don’t know why it didn’t occurred to me before…).

This version also fixes some minor bugs (many thanks to the users of the simmer-devel mailing list for taking their simulations to edge cases, where these bugs arise), deprecates the
onestep() function and provides the new
stepn() instead. Since
onestep() serves primarily for debugging purposes, the transition to the new one may go unnoticed. Finally, there is a new vignette about the Dining Philosophers Problem.
