RcppArmadillo 0.7.960.1.2

armadillo image

A second fix-up release is needed following on the recent bi-monthly RcppArmadillo release as well as the initial follow-up as it turns out that OS X / macOS is so darn special that it needs an entire separate treatment for OpenMP. Namely to turn it off entirely...

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) 384 other packages on CRAN---an increase of 54 since the CRAN release in June!

Changes in RcppArmadillo version 0.7.960.1.2 (2017-08-29)

  • On macOS, OpenMP support is now turned off (#170).

  • The package is now compiling under the C++11 standard (#170).

  • The vignette dependency is correctly set (James and Dirk in #168 and #169)

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.
