A second Armadillo release 6.700.6 came out in the 6.700 series, and we uploaded RcppArmadillo 0.6.700.6.0 to CRAN and Debian. This followed the usual thorough reverse-dependecy checking of by now 220 packages using.
This release is a little unusual in that it contains both upstream bugfixes in the same series (see below) but also two nice bug fixes from the RcppArmadillo side. Both were squashed by George G. Vega Yon via two focused pull request. The first ensures that we can now use
ARMA_64BIT_WORD (provided C++11 is turned on too) allowing for much bigger Armadillo objects. And the second plugs a small leak in the sparse matrix converter I had added a while back. Nice work, all told!
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.
Changes in this release are as follows:
