There is a new alpha release (0.999375-2) of the lme4 package on
R-forge.R-project.org. Major changes in this release are:
- The effect of the link function and the variance function in the
family argument have been separated. Families beyond the binomial and
poisson are now allowed although I would advise caution. I need to do
some more research on whether a common scale parameter changes the
calculation of the deviance. (Feature request #81).
- The flist slot is now a data frame. (Part of Feature request #96).
- the weights argument is now handled properly. In particular, its
use no longer causes a segfault (Bug #92)
- some slots have been renamed and code simplified.
