Resolve platform dependancies with current random number generation. Many registration algorithms depend on random sampling, exactly where I came across the problem.


It would be great to standardize the random number generator to be sufficiently random, fast and generate the same sequences (from a given seed) across platforms. The discussion culminated with a post: I'm not sure any action happened on the suggestions.
