digest 0.6.16

digest version 0.6.16 arrived on CRAN earlier today, and was just prepared for Debian as well.

digest creates hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the 'md5', 'sha-1', 'sha-256', 'sha-512', 'crc32', 'xxhash32', 'xxhash64' and 'murmur32' algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects.

This release brings a few robustifications. Radford Neal pointed out that serialize() output should not be unit-tested as it always reflects the R version, and will change--so we no longer do that. Henrik Bengtsson pointed out missing leading padding for crc32 output which we added, and corrected the minimal R version we should depend on. Thanks to both for the help in making the package better. We also added some more tests now achieving 100% coverage.

CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version.
