Dear R users,
It is my pleasure to announce the availability of package stepR (1.0-2)
The main purpose of the package is to fit piecewise constant functions
(a.k.a. step-functions or block signals) to serial data in a fully
data-driven manner under certain (Gaussian or non-Gaussian)
It mainly implements the algorithms described in the references below -
in a (hopefully) user-friendly fashion.
example(smuceR) # for  and 
example(jsmurf) # for 
example(stepsel) # for 
to get an idea about what it can do, and how to use it.
We hope it proves useful; community feedback is therefore very welcome!
