The new version 0.7 of our RobASt-family of packages is available on 
CRAN for several days. As there were many changes we will only sketch 
the most important ones here. For more details see the corresponding 
NEWS files (e.g. news(package = "RobAStBase") or using function NEWS 
from package startupmsg i.e. NEWS("RobAStBase")).


First of all the new package RobLoxBioC was added to the family which 
includes S4 classes and methods for preprocessing omics data, in 
particular gene expression data.


##############################################
## All packages (RandVar, RobAStBase, RobLox, RobLoxBioC,
##                         ROptEst, ROptEstOld, ROptRegTS, RobRex)
##############################################
- TOBEDONE file was added as a starting point for collaborations. The
file can be displayed via function TOBEDONE from package startupmsg;
e.g. TOBEDONE("distr")
- tests/Examples folder for some automatic testing was introduced


##############################################
## Package RandVar
##############################################
- mainly fixing of warnings and bugs


##############################################
## Package RobAStBase
##############################################
- enhanced plotting, in particular methods for qqplot
- unified treatment of NAs
- extended implementation for total variation neighbourhoods
- implementation of k-step estimator construction extended


##############################################
## Package RobLox
##############################################
- na.rm argument added
- introduction of finite-sample correction


##############################################
## Package ROptEst
##############################################
- optional use of alternative algorithm to obtain Lagrange multipliers
  using duality based optimization
- extended implementation for total variation neighbourhoods
- solutions for general parameter transformations with nuisance
  components
- several extensions to the examples in folder scripts
- implementation of k-step estimator construction extended


##############################################
## Package ROptEstOld
##############################################
- still needed for packages ROptRegTS and RobRex
- removed Symmetry and DistributionSymmetry implementation to
  make ROptEstOld compatible with distr 2.2


##############################################
## Package ROptRegTS
##############################################
- still depends on ROptEstOld


##############################################
## Packages RobRex
##############################################
- moved some of the examples in \dontrun{} to reduce check time ...
