too noisy though, so we now suppress it. ] The skeleton package is also
beefed up a little. 

You can install from the drat repo at


via a simple


It has been tested against all 411 reverse depends on RcppArmadillo; no
errors have been found.  It should be as good as a CRAN release, but we aim

Thanks,  Dirk
