Dear all,

I have just uploaded to CRAN the version 1.5 of the
package 'adehabitat'. Significant changes are
listed below:

* the package now contains a new function allowing a factorial 
decomposition of the Mahalanobis distances in habitat selection studies, 
named madifa().

* The ENFA can now be performed using all kinds of variables (numeric, 
factors, fuzzy, mixing of several types, etc.)

* Several methods allowing the analysis of animals movements have been 
added, including the first passage time (function fpt()), a 
rediscretization algorithm (redisltraj()), and an interactive graphic 
window for dynamic analysis (trajdyn())

* A function for interactive exploration of maps of class "kasc" has 
been added (explore.kasc)

* Scott Fortmann-Roe (Univ. Berkeley) programmed a better algorithm for 
Nearest neighbour Convex hull home range estimation.

* The function kasc2spixdf() have been updated

Happy testing,
