Conrad released a first release candidate for Armadillo 8.400. I wrapped this
up as 0.8.399.0.0 (so that R's version sorting can allow later 0.8.400.*
releases) and put it into the rcpp-drat at https://rcppcore.github.io/drat/

you can get the source tarball.  Please test this.

Conrad's notes:
  8.400-RC1 (Release Candidate 1) contains new features, enhancements, speedups and bug fixes.
  Available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/arma/files/armadillo-8.400-RC1.tar.xz
  Please test and report any issues.
