'surveyNG' version 0.3 is on CRAN.

 This package provides experimental features for survey analysis that may be incorporated in the survey package in the future. Currently there are facilities for analysis of complex surveys using (possibly large) data sets stored in a SQLite database. However, analysis facilities for these SQL-backed survey designs are rather more limited than in the 'survey' package.

Version 0.3 adds hexagonal binning plots and kernel smoothing.

Also, the 'survey' package hasn't been announced on this list since version 2.9 in 2005 and verison 3.6-11 was recently posted.  It provides fairly comprehensive facilities for analysis of complex survey designs.  Major additions since 2.9 are calibration estimators (aka GREG or generalized raking), simple two-phase designs, and smoothing.
