A pure maintenance release 0.2.6 of the gcbd package is now on CRAN. The gcbd proposes a benchmarking framework for LAPACK and BLAS operations (as the library can exchanged in a plug-and-play sense on suitable OSs) and records result in local database. Recent / upcoming changes to DBMI and RSQLite let me to update the package; there are no actual functionality changes in this release.
This new release reflects all the suggestions and comments I received during the review process for the Journal of Open Source Software submission. I am happy to say that about twenty-nine days after I submitted, the paper was accepted and is now published.
