Package Synth updated to version 1.1-5 with previous version 1.1-4 dated 2013-08-12

Title: Synthetic Control Group Method for Comparative Case Studies
Description: Implements the synthetic control group method for comparative case studies as described in Abadie and Gardeazabal (2003) and Abadie, Diamond, and Hainmueller (2010, 2011, 2014). The synthetic control method allows for effect estimation in settings where a single unit (a state, country, firm, etc.) is exposed to an event or intervention. It provides a data-driven procedure to construct synthetic control units based on a weighted combination of comparison units that approximates the characteristics of the unit that is exposed to the intervention. A combination of comparison units often provides a better comparison for the unit exposed to the intervention than any comparison unit alone.

Package RcppEigen updated to version 0.3.2.0.2 with previous version 0.3.2.0.1 dated 2013-12-19

Title: Rcpp integration for the Eigen templated linear algebra library.
Description: R and Eigen integration using Rcpp. Eigen is a C++ template library for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers and related algorithms. It supports dense and sparse matrices on integer, floating point and complex numbers, decompositions of such matrices, and solutions of linear systems. Its performance on many algorithms is comparable with some of the best implementations based on Lapack and level-3 BLAS. The RcppEigen package includes the header files from the Eigen C++ template library (currently version 3.2.0). Thus users do not need to install Eigen itself in order to use RcppEigen. Since version 3.1.1, Eigen is licensed under the Mozilla Public License (version 2); earlier version were licensed under the GNU LGPL version 3 or later. RcppEigen (the Rcpp bindings/bridge to Eigen) is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 or later, as is the rest of Rcpp.
Author: Douglas Bates, Romain Francois and Dirk Eddelbuettel; the authors of Eigen for the included version of Eigen

Package RcppZiggurat updated to version 0.1.2 with previous version 0.1.1 dated 2013-12-23

Title: Rcpp integration of different Ziggurat Normal RNG implementations
Description: The Ziggurat generator for normally distributed random numbers, originally proposed by Marsaglia and Tsang (JSS, 2000), has been improved upon a few times starting with Leong et al (JSS, 2005). This package provides an aggregation in order to compare different implementations. The goal is to provide an 'faster but good enough' alternative for use with R and C++ code. The package is still in an early state. Unless you know what you are doing, sticking with the generators provided by R may be a good idea as these have been extremely diligently tested.
