C interface supports

Fixed potential memory access errors when recreating sample from saved state.
Correctly de-serializes saved tree structure.
Sampler now explicitly supports
setSigma for use in
setOffset has an additional argument
updateScale. When the response is continuous and
TRUE, the implicit scaling,
effecting the node parameters' variance, is adjusted to match
the range of the new data. This optionally reverts the change
of version 0.9-13 with the intention of being used only during
warmup when using an offset that is itself being sampled.
Extraneous print line from debugging 0.9-17.
Eliminated two race conditions from multithreaded crossvalidation. Report thanks to Ignacio Martinez.
Eliminated garbage read on construction of crossvalidation sampler, removing inconsistencies across multiple runs with the same starting seed.

xbart divides data correctly with random subsampling.
More control over cut points has been added. It is now possible to specify
the cut points for a variable once and subsequently change that predictor
without also modifying the cuts using
sampler$getTrees implemented to get a flattened, depth-first down

sampler$setPredictor, an argument specifies whether or not to

x as integer matrix of the max of which cut point an observation is
to the left of, by default using 16 bit integers. Limited to 65535 cut points.
That can be increased with some special compilation instructions.
Uses CPU dispatch and SIMD instructions for some operations. This and the integer

Saved trees are stored using significantly less memory.

bart2 introduced, similar to
bart but with
more efficient default parameters.
dbartsControl has had two parameters renamed:
numBurnIn is now
dbartsControl supports parameters
In the C interface, a new function (
setRNGState) has been
added to specify the states of the random number generators, of which there
is now one for every chain.
State objects saved by the handles no longer contain the total fits, since they can be rebuild from the tree fits. States are also lists of objects now, with one corresponding to each chain. Tree fits and strings are matrices corresponding to the number of trees and saved samples.
