October 24Mir Random v0.2.8 release
About package -------------- >Mir-Random  is a random number generator library that covers C++ STL . It is compatible with mir.ndslice, std.algorithm, and std.range. In the same time mir.random has its own API, which is more secure and safe compared with std.random. Release v0.2.8 -------------- Additions: - Added xorshift1024*φ and xoroshiro128+ generators  (mir.random.engine.xorshift : Xorshift1024StarPhi, Xoroshiro128Plus) - Mt19937 and Mt19937_64 can be seeded from array or ndslice - mir.random.engine.preferHighBits!T to query new optional enum bool preferHighBits Improvements: - When the high bits of a PRNG's output are known to have better statistical properties than the low bits, use high bits when not all bits of output are required. - On macOS, OpenBSD, and NetBSD, use arc4random_buf  in unpredictableSeed and genRandomNonBlocking. Bugfixes: - Fix isSaturatedRandomEngine!T not working when T.opCall is a function template. - Fix address-based increment for PCGs in unique_stream mode. - Incorporated upstream fix for seeding a MCG with a seed that's a multiple of the modulus.

Since I am not sure whether this is common knowledge, arc4random isn't based on RC4 on these platforms. macOS uses AES, and OpenBSD and NetBSD use ChaCha20.
