sitmo v2.0.1 Released

The objective of sitmo (CRAN, GitHub) is to provide the means for performing parallel draws from a Parallel Pseudo Random Number Generator (PPRNG). To that end, the package is largely a bridge into the PPRNGs developed by the sitmo consultancy agency.

For this point-release, sitmo addresses issues that arose on CRAN. Specifically, we fix the use of parallelization flags in the Makevars{.win} files. Moreover, we address a minor compiler warning associated with a missing new line at the end of a file.

sitmo is now being used in the CautiousLearning package in addition to bssm and dqrng.
