A new release, now at version 0.6.12, of the digest package is now on CRAN and in Debian.
The digest creates hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the 'md5', 'sha-1', 'sha-256', 'crc32', 'xxhash' and 'murmurhash' algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects.
This release extends sha1 digest methods to even more types, thanks to another contribution by Thierry Onkelinx.
CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version.
