Dear useRs,

FlexMix version 1.0-0 has been released on CRAN. FlexMix implements a
general framework for finite mixtures of regression models using the
EM algorithm.  FlexMix provides the E-step and all data handling,
while the M-step can be supplied by the user to easily define new
models. Existing drivers implement mixtures of standard linear models,
generalized linear models and model-based clustering.

Compared to the porvious version on CRAN the code has not changed, but
the package has now an introductionary vignette, see


after installing the package. The vignette has also been published in
the Journal of Statistical Software, see http://www.jstatsoft.org.

Best regards,
Fritz Leisch
