With the assistance of Saikat DebRoy we have produced an nlme package
(linear and nonlinear mixed-effects models) for R (see for details about R).  The nlme package for
R requires R-0.90.0, which was released earlier today.

Also released today was NLME 3.2 for S-PLUS.  We will be working on
incorporating the changes from NLME 3.1 to 3.2 into the R version but
we wanted to get the R version out for testing now so we are releasing
it in the 3.1 version.

nlme_3.1-1.tar.gz was just uploaded to the master CRAN (Comprehensive
R Archive Network) site.  It should appear on the archives, like in a day or two.  For those who are
anxious, the file can be downloaded as

This package incorporates the functions that were previously available
as the lme package for R.  Use the lme package with version 0.65.1 of
R or earlier (although we would recommend that you instead upgrade to
0.90.0 and the nlme package).  Use the nlme package with version
0.90.0 or later.  Do not try to use both.

The graphics in the NLME 3.2 and earlier libraries for S-PLUS use
trellis graphics extensively.  These graphics does not work in R
because trellis is not available for R.
