I'm happy to announce the candisc package, v 0.5-9, now on CRAN.

Generalized Canonical Discriminant Analysis

This package includes functions for computing and visualizing 
generalized canonical discriminant analyses for a multivariate linear 
model. They are designed to provide low-rank visualizations of terms in 
a mlm via the plot method and the heplots package.

The methods are described in

Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, 16 (2), 421-444.
