Version 3.0-0 of bayesm is now on CRAN.

All MCMC routines in this version have been recoded using rcpp-Armadillo.
This results in speeds gains
of between 2 and 30 times faster (hierarchical and density estimation
routines are on the higher end of this range) than
in bayesm version 2.2-5.

The algorithm, rsurGibbs, has been improved for better speed as well as

A Bayesian treatment of aggregate random coefficient models (with
instruments) has been added, see rbayesBLP.
