RcppEnsmallen v0. Released - More Bug Fixes

The RcppEnsmallen package brings to R a Header-Only C++ Mathematical Optimization Library for Armadillo. In particular, Ensmallen is a templated C++ mathematical optimization library (by the MLPACK team) that provides a simple set of abstractions for writing an objective function to optimize.

In this update, the Ensmallen Development Team provided a set of patches to address a few edge cases. Most notably, there was work on BigBatchSGD optimizer and a handful of tolerance fixes. The update notes are next!
