Dear useRs,

`multcomp' version 0.991-1 will be shortly available from 
CRAN near you. Nearly all functionality contained in the
package has been re-implemented from scratch.

The focus of the package has been extended to general linear
hypotheses in arbitrary parametric models and the most important
function to check out is `glht()'. Multiple comparison of
means procedures (for example Tukey all-pair comparisons)
are contained in the framework as special cases.

The old user interface (functions `simint()' and `simtest()') are still
available, however deprecated, and the presentation of their output 
differs from older versions of `multcomp'.

As always, feedback, feature requests and bug reports are more than 

Best wishes,



Package: multcomp
Title: Simultaneous Inference for General Linear Hypotheses
