Changes from 0.4 to 0.6
o ci.pd() amended to support the Agresti-Caffo method for confidence
intervals for difference between proportions. Newcombes method 10
is still used in twoby2.
o apc.fit() added. Fits age-period-cohort models with a range of
possibilities for parametrizations.
o Functions for time-splitting at arbitrary times and at recurrent
failures have been added: isec(), icut(), fcut1(), fcut() and
ex1(). Eventually they will be superseded by new facilities in Lexis.
o Function apc.plot() to make a plot of an apc fit is added. It is just
a wrapper for apc.frame() and apc.lines(), with suitable computation
the paramters supplied to apc.frame.
o Lexis.lines(): pch.fail and col.fail expands to vectors of length two
if only one value is given.
o ci.cum() aimed at computing cumulative hazard functions from
parametric functions for hazards.
o Problem in print.floated() with printing of objects of class
o Problem in ci.lin when subset did not match any factor names and
diff=T was given the function crashed. Fixed, and documentation
o cal.yr produces objects of class c("cal.yr","numeric"). Functions
as.Date.numeric and as.Date.cal.yr added.
