RcppArmadillo 0.9.900.3.0

armadillo image

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 languageā€“and is widely used by (currently) 769 other packages on CRAN.

A few days ago, Conrad released a new minor version 9.900.3 of Armadillo which we packaged and tested as usual. Given the incremental release character, we only tested the release and not candidate release. No regressions were found, and, as usual, logs from reverse-depends runs are in the rcpp-logs repo.

All changes in the new release are noted below.

Changes in RcppArmadillo version 0.9.900.3.0 (2020-09-02)

  • Upgraded to Armadillo release 9.900.3 (Nocturnal Misbehaviour)

    • More efficient code for initialising matrices with fill::zeros

    • Fixes for various error messages

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a diffstat report relative to previous release. More detailed information is on the RcppArmadillo page. Questions, comments etc should go to the rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
