Introducing sanitizers 0.1.0

A new package sanitizers is now on CRAN. It provides test cases for Address Sanitizers, and Undefined Behaviour Sanitizers. These are two recent features of both g++ and clang++, and described in the Checking Memory Access section of the Writing R Extension manual.

I set up a new web page for the sanitizers package which illustrates their use case via pre-built Docker images, similar to what I presented at the end of my useR! 2014 keynote a few weeks ago.

So instead of repeating this over here, I invite you to read the detailed discussion on the sanitizers page.
