Bioconductor has a release version and a devel version.  Releases happen twice a year (The next occurring at the end of October).  All new packages accepted will remain in the devel version of Bioconductor until the next schedule release.  The package for that time, will only be available on the devel version of Bioconductor. See http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/useDevel/ .  Upon the next release, it will then be available in both release and devel.

The link you provided is for Bioconductor release 3.5 only:

The package is included in the devel BiocViews for Bioconductor 3.6:

Thanks but that didn’t clarify why users should install the dev version.
Why the package is not on the page
Sorry this is first time I submitted a package to bioconductor and I am not so familiar with instructions.
