A very much revised version (2.0-10) of the mixreg (mixtures of
regressions) package has recently been installed on CRAN. The previously
existing version (0.0-6) was long overdue for an overhaul.

The new version now provides a formula oriented syntax for the
main function (mixreg()).  An important addition is the function
visualFit() which allows the user to determine starting values by
visual/graphical means (in the case of models with a single predictor).

A vignette "mystMix" ("The Mysteries of Mixtures of Regressions") has
been added to the package.

I am confident that this package will now be much more useful than
it was previously.

Enjoy! :-)
