A new RcppArmadillo 0.7.900.1.0 release is in the rcpp drat repo as a
candidate for a subsequent CRAN release.  Please test it if you use
RcppArmadillo more than casually.

It has gone through a few complete reverse-depends checks and work as
expected in almost all cases.  Two packages no longer install as they touch
Armadillo internals; I will contact their maintainer.  Three packages fails
tests, but they do so with the releases RcppArmadillo on CRAN so no
regressions here.  Details are on GitHub in the rcpp-logs repo.

You can install this version either using drat (see the repository README at
http://rcppcore.github.io/drat/) or in one shot via

  install.packages("RcppArmadillo", repos="http://rcppcore.github.io/drat/")

The underlying Armadillo release 7.900.1 brings the opportunity to rely more
on OpenMP for expensive Armadillo operations.

Cheers, Dirk
