RcppArmadillo 0.7.500.0.0

armadillo image

A few days ago, Conrad released Armadillo 7.500.0. The corresponding RcppArmadillo release 0.7.500.0.0 is now on CRAN (and will get into Debian 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. RcppArmadillo integrates this library with the R environment and language--and is widely used by (currently) 274 other packages on CRAN.

Changes in this release relative to the previous CRAN release are as follows:

Changes in RcppArmadillo version 0.7.500.0.0 (2016-10-20)

  • Upgraded to Armadillo release 7.500.0 (Coup d'Etat)

    • Expanded qz() to optionally specify ordering of the Schur form

    • Expanded each_slice() to support matrix multiplication

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a diffstat report. More detailed information is on the RcppArmadillo page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
