digest 0.6.20

This morning, digest version 0.6.20 went to CRAN, and I will send a package to Debian shortly as well.

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

This version contains only internal changes with a switch to the (excellent) tinytest package. This now allows you, dear user of the package, to run tinytest::test_package("digest") at any point post-installation to reassure yourself that all standard assertions and tests are still met in your installation. No other changes were made.

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

For questions or comments use the issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
