Dear R mixed-model users,

A new version of GLMMadaptive (0.6-0) has been rolled out on CRAN.

Summary: GLMMadaptive fits mixed effects models using adaptive
Gaussian quadrature to approximate the integrals over the random
effects, allowing also for user-specified models.

Website: https://drizopoulos.github.io/GLMMadaptive/

New features:

- Mixed models for ordinal grouped/clustered outcomes using the 
continuation ratio model, with forward and backward formulation. A 
worked example can be found in the online vignette: 

- The new function VIF() calculates variance inflation factors for mixed 
models fitted in the package.

- New family object unit.lindley() for fitting mixed models for bounded 
outcomes; an alternative to the Beta mixed model.

- Faster implementation of the numerical integration algorithm.

As always, any kind of feedback is more than welcome.
