The package ipred is uploaded to CRAN.

The main focus of the package is the calculation of improved predictors
in classification tasks. Misclassification error can be improved by
bootstrap aggregated classification trees and/or
the framework of indirect classification. Furthermore, a unified
interface for the estimation of misclassification error
completes the features of ipred.

We try to make the interface as general as possible, however nothing is
carved in stone and suggestions for improvement are very welcome.
