"Matching" version 0.48 is now available on CRAN.

Matching provides functions for estimating causal effects by
multivariate and propensity score matching. The package includes a
variety of univariate and multivariate tests to determine if balance
has been obtained by the matching procedure. These tests can also be
used to determine if an experiment or quasi-experiment is balanced on
baseline covariates.  The functions provide valid standard errors and
allow one to estimate various estimands.
