New package EnsemblePenReg with initial version 0.6
Package: EnsemblePenReg
Type: Package
Title: Extensible Classes and Methods for Penalized-Regression-based Integration of Base Learners
Version: 0.6
Date: 2014-11-25
Author: Mansour T.A. Sharabiani, Alireza S. Mahani
Maintainer: Alireza S. Mahani
Description: Extending the base classes and methods of EnsembleBase package for Penalized-Regression-based (Ridge and Lasso) integration of base learners. Default implementation uses cross-validation error to choose the optimal lambda (shrinkage parameter) for the final predictor. The package takes advantage of the file method provided in EnsembleBase package for writing estimation objects to disk in order to circumvent RAM bottleneck. Special save and load methods are provided to allow estimation objects to be saved to permanent files on disk, and to be loaded again into temporary files in a later R session. Users and developers can extend the package by extending the generic methods and classes provided in EnsembleBase package as well as this package.
License: GPL (>= 2)
Depends: EnsembleBase
Imports: parallel,methods,glmnet

Package RcppArmadillo updated to version 0.4.550.1.0 with previous version 0.4.500.0 dated 2014-10-30

Title: Rcpp Integration for the Armadillo Templated Linear Algebra Library
Description: R and Armadillo integration using Rcpp Armadillo is a templated C++ linear algebra library (by Conrad Sanderson) that aims towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS libraries. The RcppArmadillo package includes the header files from the templated Armadillo library. Thus users do not need to install Armadillo itself in order to use RcppArmadillo. Armadillo is licensed under the MPL 2.0, while RcppArmadillo (the Rcpp bindings/bridge to Armadillo) is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 or later, as is the rest of Rcpp.
