Dear R users,

I would like to inform you that everything of the "micEcon" package that is 
related to Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) has been moved to the "frontier" 
package, because this is a more appropriate place for the functions 
"front41WriteInput", "front41ReadOutput", and "front41Est", and the 
corresponding (S3) methods. The data sets "riceProdPhil" and "Coelli" have 
been removed from the "micEcon" package, because they were already included in 
the "frontier" package (the latter is named "front41Data" in the "frontier" 
package). The new "frontier" package (with the "front41..." functions) is 
available on CRAN now and the new "micEcon" package (without the "front41..." 
functions) will be available on CRAN in some time. Please use the meantime to 
update your code. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions 
or comments,

Arne Henningsen
