digest 0.6.31 on CRAN: snprintf Update

Release 0.6.31 of the digest package arrived at CRAN this weekend, and is being uploaded to Debian as well.

digest creates hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256, sha-512, crc32, xxhash32, xxhash64, murmur32, spookyhash, and blake3 algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects. It is a mature and widely-used as many tasks may involve caching of objects for which it provides convenient general-purpose hash key generation to quickly identify the various objects.

This release contains the tiny change (in maybe a dozen places) triggered recently by macOS and now checked for by r-devel which consists of replacing (v)sprintf calls with (v)snprintf. No more, no less.

My CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to the previous version. For questions or comments use the issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
