digest 0.6.17

digest version 0.6.17 arrived on CRAN earlier today after a day of gestation in the bowels of CRAN, and should get uploaded to Debian in due course.

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 another robustifications thanks to Radford Neal who noticed a segfault in 32 bit mode on Sparc running Solaris. Yay for esoteric setups. But thanks to his very nice pull request, this is taken care of, and it also squashed one UBSAN error under the standard gcc setup. But two files remain with UBSAN issues, help would be welcome!

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