Stan 2.14 is out and it fixes the sampler bug in Stan versions 2.10 through 2.13.
It’s critical to update to Stan 2.14. See:
The other interfaces will update when you udpate CmdStan.
After Michael Betancourt diagnosed the bug, it didn’t take long for him to generate a test statistic so we can test this going forward, then submit a pull request for the patch and new test. I code reviewed that and made sure a clean check out did the right thing and then we merged. We had a few other fixes in, including one from Mitzi Morris that completed the compound declare define feature. Then Mitzi and Daniel built the releases for the Stan math library, the core Stan C++ library, and then Daniel built the release for CmdStan. After that, Ben Goodrich and Jiqiang Guo worked on updating RStan and Allen Riddell worked through pile of issues for PyStan, and both were released.
Stan Con coming soon!

Andrew Gelman and Michael Betancourt will be speaking, along with nine submitted talks and a closing Q&A panel. Most of the rest of us from Columbia will be there and I believe other dev team members are coming in for the event. There will be courses the two days before.
Hope to see you in New York!
