Dear R Community,

I am pleased to announce that a new version of the mefa R package is
available at the CRAN.

mefa is a package for multivariate data handling in ecology and
biogeography. It provides object classes to represent the data coded
by samples, taxa and segments (i.e., subpopulations, repeated
measures). It supports easy processing of the data along with
relational data tables for samples and taxa. An object of class mefa
is a project specific compendium of the dataset and can be easily used
in further analyses. Methods are provided for extraction, aggregation,
conversion, plotting, summary and reporting of mefa objects. Reports
can be generated in plain text or LaTex.

The current version has been published in JSS (
http://www.jstatsoft.org/v29/i08 ). The paper presents worked examples
on a variety of ecological analyses.

Best wishes,
