following the release of R-1.4.0, new versions of the packages

	* exactRankTests (0.6-0)

	* mvtnorm (0.5-0)
	* maxstat (0.5-2)

are available on CRAN. Several changes to the user-interfaces were necessary
(improvements, hopefully) and some new features are included, for example

in `exactRankTests':

* one- and two-sample permutation tests are available,

* new interface to `pperm',

* exact Hodges-Lehmann confidence intervals in `wilcox.exact' (PR#1150),

* `perm.test' and `wilcox.exact' are generic and offer a formula interface.

Major contributions came (and come) from Kurt Hornik, he 
is now co-author of `exactRankTests'.

In `mvtnorm':

* `{dr}mvnorm' moved from package `e1071' to `mvtnorm' (thanks to Fritz

* `pmv{t}norm' has a slightly new interface: the length of lower, upper and
  mean are recycled to the length of the largest and it is possible to
  specify either the correlation or covariance matrix.

In `maxstat':

* `maxstat.test' is now generic and provides a formula interface as well as a
  print and plot method,

* it depends on mvtnorm-0.5-0 and exactRankTests-0.6-0.

Known bugs were fixed, see the CHANGES file in each of the packages for
