Yet another monthly upstream Armadillo update gets us the first changes to the new the 6.* series. This was preceded by two uploads of test released to GitHub-only. These two were tested both against all reverse-dependencies as usual. A matching upload to Debian will follow shortly.
Armadillo is a powerful and expressive C++ template library for linear algebra aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use with a syntax deliberately close to a Matlab.
This release is fairly straightforward with few changes:
Changes in RcppArmadillo version 0.6.200.2.0 (2015-10-31)
Upgraded to Armadillo 6.200.0 ("Midnight Blue Deluxe")
diagmat()to handle non-square matrices and arbitrary diagonals
trace()to handle non-square matrices
Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the most recent CRAN release. As always, more detailed information is on the RcppArmadillo page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
