Some changes in the R-INLA package

There are some changes in the testing version of the R-INLA package from version 'INLA_17.10.18', that requires an 
official announcement

1.  The `internal separator' for sections in the Model.ini-file has changed from [NAME] to $NAME$ to allow for names including '[' and ']', like
this 

 Fixed effects:
               mean     sd 0.025quant 0.5quant 0.975quant    mode kld
(Intercept) -9.0750 0.0564    -9.1874  -9.0743    -8.9661 -9.0731   0

x]5- ~]      0.9411 0.0771     0.7899   0.9410     1.0925  0.9408   0

This means that if you're running INLA remotely, the local and remote version MUST (for the time being), either both be the stable version,
or the testing version. Otherwise, you'll get an error like this:

> r = inla(y~1, data = data.frame(y=0), inla.call = "remote")
Run /usr/local/bin/inla at hrue@inla.math.ntnu.no

*** ERROR *** inla_build: no section of type = [PROBLEM]



2.  the 32bit versions of the inla-program has been removed. IF there are some that MUST have those, please let us know at help@r-inla.org.
This because it was getting painful to maintain those and 32bit computer are quite rare these days.
