Version 0.8.0 of the gregmisc package is now (or will shortly be) available
on CRAN.  

New in this release:

- Enhanced and bug-fixed 'CrossTable' function (contributed by
  Marc Schwartz)

- Augmented the 'barplot2' function with an 'add' argument to allow for 
  the addition of a barplot to an existing graphic. (contributed by
  Marc Schwartz)

- Added the 'baloonplot' function which creates a visual 2-way table 
  containing circles whose area corresponds to the size of the corresponding

- Renamed 'contrast.lm' to 'fit.contrast'.  This new name is more
  descriptive and makes it easier to create and use methods for other
  classes, eg lme.

- New contrast.lm function which generates a 'depreciated' warning and
  calls fit.contrast.

- Enabled fit.contrast for lme object now that Doug Bates has provided
  the necessary support for contrasts in the nlme package. (Thanks Doug!)
  Requires the newly released nlme 3.1-37.

- 'make.contrasts' has been augmented to check for too many submitted 
   contrast rows

- Updated wapply.R to allow specification of evaluation points when
  method is 'width' or 'range' using the 'pts' argument.

- Updated wapply.Rd to add 'pts' argument

- Fixed typos, spelling errors, grammatical errors and lack of clarity
  in various help pages.
