Hi all,

a couple of weeks ago I submitted a yet tiny new package, splots, that 
aims to deliver different plotting routines for high-throughput screens 
independently of analysis packages. The idea is too have a separate 
plotting package with a minimum dependencies that would allow for nice 
plots of screen-like data (what is currently done by parts of cellHTS, 
prada etc).

The package has now passed through build/check and therefore I am 
announcing it.

At the moment, the package contains one single function, plotScreen, 
which is a grid-graphics implementation of a similar function from 
cellHTS (credit to Ligia Breas for the idea!), and it stays this way for 
the release. However I will add a couple of functions in the later devel 
version as time allows.

I would be really happy if the package attract not only users but 
developers as well. Feel free to participate in package development, 
adding new functions, or simply using it.
