RcppEnsmallen package brings to R a Header-Only C++ Mathematical
Optimization Library for Armadillo.
In particular, Ensmallen is a

objective function to optimize.
In the second update of 2022, the Ensmallen Development Team has focused on adding new optimizers
to the underlying package. Newly added optimizers are:
AdaBelief, AdaSqrt, Yogi, DemonSGD, and DemonAdam. There was also a minor
bug fix related to ADAM-like optimizers relating to policy resets. Thankfully,
the R packaging system had already addressed the minimum requirements of
armadillo in the prior release and, thus, the other bug fix was targeting more
