A new release, now at version number 0.6.10, of the digest package is now on CRAN. I also just prepared the Debian upload.
This release, just like the previous one, is once again the work mostly of external contributors. Michel Lang added length checks to
sha1(); Thierry Onkelinx extended
sha1() support and added more tests, Viliam Simko also extended
sha1() to more types, and Henrik Bengtsson improved intervals and fixed a bug with file usage.
CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version.
