Dear R Community,

I am pleased to announce the release of a new package called  'mvmeta', now available on CRAN (version 0.2.0).
The package mvmeta provides some functions to perform fixed and random-effects multivariate meta-analysis and meta-regression. This modelling framework is exploited to pool multiple correlated outcomes across studies, and already applied in different fields: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials reporting more than 1 outcome, multi-site observational studies estimating multi-parameterized associations, among others.
The package is fully documented through help pages. A package vignette will be hopefully added soon.
I hope that this package will be useful to your work. 
Any kind of feedback (questions, suggestions, bug-reports, etc.) is appreciated.
