About package
Mir-Random [1] is a random number generator library that covers C++ STL [2]. 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 v0.2.5
Mir-Random got three major additions:

- System level `genRandomNonBlocking` and `genRandomBlocking` was added to `mir.random.engine` by Sebastian Wilzbach (@wilzbach). `unpredictableSeed` became more secure.

- Permuted Congruential Generator (PCG) [3] was added by Nicholas Wilson (@thewilsonator) After a while it will replace Mersenne Twister for default engine (`Random` alias).

- `SphereVariable`, `SimplexVariable`, `DirichletVariable`, and `MultivariateNormalVariable` was added to `mir.random.ndvariable` by Simon B├╝rger (@krox). Multivariate normal RNG uses private Cholesky decomposition, which has not unittests yet. PRs are welcome.
