[R] Announcing (R-version): smart prediction

Dear Everybody,

Version 0.5 of the smart prediction library smartpred is now

The smartpred library consists of some modified existing and new
functions to fix a problem relating to the modelling functions lm and
glm. The modified versions now remember the "parameters" of special
smartened functions (bs, ns, scale and poly are supplied). We call this
"smart" prediction. The parameters are saved on the fitted model
object, and are retrieved when predictions are made from the model.
Users can easily smarten their own functions - guidelines are given.
Another problem (or better, inconvenient convention) of lm not handling
factors conveniently is also rectified in some older versions of
S-PLUS (3.x, 5.x).

Currently, versions are available for S-PLUS 2000 for Windows, 5.x and
3.x. Also for R 1.0.

The code can be obtained from

Does anyone know of an ICA package for R?
