Dear all,
 let me please announce two new R packages for interactive dendrogram
exploration: idendro and idendr0.

idendro [1] enables useRs to inspect hierarchical clustering dendrograms
interactively: to select and color clusters, to zoom and pan the
dendrogram, and to visualize the clustered data not only in a built-in heat
map, but also in any interactive plot implemented in the cranvas [2]

A lightweight version idendr0 [3] with reduced dependencies is also
available. This version is suited for those who have no cranvas (and its
dependencies, namely the qtbase and qtpaint packages) installed. idendr0 is
implemented using base R graphics embedded in a Tcl/Tk GUI, and can be
integrated with GGobi dynamic interactive graphics made available to R
using the rggobi package [4].

A comprehensive description of the idendr0 package is available as a recent
JSS paper: https://www.jstatsoft.org/article/view/v076i10, and also as
vignettes to the packages.
