I would like to announce the release of Deducer 0.2-3 and the new  
package DeducerPlugInExample.


Deducer is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to  
proprietary data analysis software such as SPSS, JMP, and Minitab. It  
has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks,  
and an excel-like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames.

This new version of Deducer includes an easy to use API for creating  
new GUI dialogs for statistical analysis. These dialogs can be  
created using either Java, or purely in R. Documentation, which is  
currently under construction, is available at: http://www.deducer.org/ 


DeducerPlugInExample is a simple plug-in package illustrating dialog  
creation both from within R and from Java. It aims to be a good  
starting place for future plug-in projects.


I am very interested in community feedback regarding the API and  
Deducer in general. If you have a suggestion or question please feel  
free to join the discussion group at http://groups.google.com/group/ 

All the best,
Ian Fellows
