Dear R users,

I'd like to announce the RcmdrPlugin.survival package, which has just been
made available on CRAN. The package provides an R Commander plug-in for the
survival package, with dialogs for Cox models, parametric survival
regression models, estimation of survival curves, and testing for
differences in survival curves, along with data-management facilities and a
variety of tests, diagnostics and graphs. All of this is tightly integrated
with the standard R Commander menus. 

As does the Rcmdr, the package takes advantage of the R facilities for
translating messages into other languages. It comes with a translation into
Brazilian Portuguese, courtesy of Marilia Sá Carvalho of FIOCRUZ in Rio de
Janeiro, whose suggestions during the development of the package were
invaluable. Please contact me if you're interested in providing a
translation into another language.

Reports of bugs and other problems are welcome, as are suggestions for
extending the package.
