Version 3.11 of the survey package is making its way through CRAN.

Since the last announcement on this list, of version 3.9, last September, there have been many minor bug fixes and usability improvements. The main new features are
  - loglinear models with svyloglin()
  - database-backed designs now allow new variables to be created, support ODBC
    in addition to DBI database interfaces, and support multiple imputation
  - there is an approximation (Brewer,2002) for PPS sampling without replacement
  - svysmooth() now does quantile as well as mean smoothing
  - barplot() and dotchart() methods for many objects.
