The ade4 package (v. 1.2-1) has been updated on CRAN.

New features include:

- functions based on Rao's axiomatization of diversity measures : Rao's
diversity coefficient and dissimilarity coefficient (divc and disc)

- functions based on Excoffier et al. analysis of molecular variance
with tests of the difference among the factors (amova).

- functions introducing double principal coordinate analysis (dpcoa).

- genet class and related functions to analyse genetic data (tables with
populations in rows and alleles/loci in columns).

- kdist class and related functions to analyse series of distance matrices
measured on the same individuals.

- rlq analysis, a three-tables ordination method, with permutation test (rlq)

- hill-smith analysis, a row-weighted version of dudi.mix (dudi.hillsmith)

- function ktab.match2ktabs, to prepare a STATICO analysis

- functions s.class and s.chull allow the use of color.
