 gslrandom – doesn't build with recent vector
Summary
A powerful library with:
 random numbers/variables
 list shuffling and random choice
 various probability distributions
 cumulative distribution functions
 a monadic interface
Can use different randomness sources (/dev/random
and /dev/urandom
, StdGen
, the Mersenne twister generator).
Ecosystem
kstest (Kolmogorov distribution), randomextras (weighted shuffling and sampling, card shuffling, etc)

Summary
An implementation of the PCG family of generators.
Pros

Claimed to be faster than the Mersenne twister, and harder to predict (Mersenne twister can be predicted after just 624 outputs).
