x13binary 1.1.61 on CRAN: Maintenance

The x13binary team is thrilled to share the availability of Release 1.1.61 of the x13binary package providing the X-13ARIMA-SEATS program by the US Census Bureau which arrived on CRAN earlier today.

This release brings two updates suggested by the tireless CRAN maintainers. Kurt Hornik suggested to now also ignore stderr when calling the x13 binary via system: it appears that builds under the new-ish and clang-based flang-new now emit on stderr even if Fortran-based binaries did not before. So we adjust. And Brian Ripley pointed out that our Makefile for creating the x13 binary was not quite as is should be, which we adjusted. And I just realized I should have named this 1.1.60-2 to follow the upstream convention but didn’t. Next time.

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release showing changes to the previous release.
