sitmo v2.0.2 Released - Bag of Bugfixes and Modernizations

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.

After two years without a new release, sitmo has been updated to address an issue highlighted by Yihui in knitr issue #2057 regarding unbalanced code chunk delimiters within the big_crush_test.Rmd. During the process of fixing this issue, we also addressed dead URLs and HTTP to HTTPS redirects alongside of updating RcppExports to support improvements.

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