There was a problem with autodiff for
cholesky_decompose introduced in 2.26.0 that we can fix with a 2.26.1 release. This breaks a pretty important function in a subtle way is why it would be good to fix it with another release.
There was additionally a problem with using
row_vector types with OpenCL distributions that can be fixed as well.
cholesky_decomposeissue is here and the fix is here.
- The row vector issue is here and the fix is here.
The plan is to do a 2.26.1 hotfix release with these two patches Monday.
Sound good? @Stan_Development_Team
