Changelog Since 0.5.5

- Added barplot2():  

    barplot2 is an enhanced version of barplot that can add confidence
    intervals for each bar, color plot region separately from the 
    background area, draw "height" axis grid lines *behind* the bars,
    and log-scale the data axis.  Contributed by Mark Schwartz

- Added CrossTable(): 

	CrossTable is an implementation of a cross-tabulation function
 	with output similar to S-Plus crosstabs() and SAS Proc Freq with
	Chi-square and Fisher tests of the independence of table factors

- Permit combinations() to be used when r>n provided   

- Renamed 'concat' function to 'combine' to avoid name conflict with
  an existing S-Plus function.

- Misc fixes to files for compatibility with R 1.6.0

- Correction of some documentation typos
