Dear R Users:

We have splitted up the micEcon package into three packages:

a) Package "maxLik" provides tools for maximum likelihood estimations 
(see http://www.maxLik.org).

b) Package "sampleSelection" provides tools for estimating Heckman-type sample 
selection/generalized tobit models (see http://www.sampleSelection.org).

c) Package "micEcon" contains the remainder, i.e. mainly tools for 
microeconomic demand and firm models, e.g. estimating the "Almost Ideal 
Demand System" or the "Symmetric Normalized Quadratic" / "Symmetric 
Generalized McFadden" profit function (see http://www.micEcon.org).

All these packages are available for download from CRAN and from their 
websites (see above).

Any comments and suggestions on these packages are welcome!
