   Sat, 20 Apr 2013                                                           
   RcppArmadillo 0.3.810.0                                                
   A new Armadillo release 3.810.0 by Conrad appeared yesterday, and was  
   wrapped up in a new release 0.3.810.0 of RcppArmadillo. Upstream       
   changes bring FFT support as well as more Sparse matrix constructors,  
   and we have an improvement to the sample() function contributed by     
   Christian Gunning.                                                     
   As RcppArmadillo is used by an increasing number of packages---on CRAN 
   alone, we find 34 direct dependencies---I also added the package to    
   Debian and upload there in parallel.                                   
   The summary of the main changes follows:

            * added fast Fourier transform: fft()                         
            * added handling of .imbue() and .transform() by submatrices  
              and subcubes                                                
            * added batch insertion constructors for sparse matrices      
            * minor fix for multiplication of complex sparse matrices     
       * Updated sample() function and test again contributed by          
         Christian Gunning                                                
   Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for the most  
   recent release As always, more detailed information is on the          
   RcppArmadillo page. Questions, comments etc should go to the           
   rcpp-devel mailing list off the R-Forge page.
