Package fgui updated to version 0.3.2 with previous version 0.3.1 dated 2009-02-23

Author: Thomas Hoffmann
Title: Function GUI
Description: Rapidly create a GUI interface for a function you created by automatically creating widgets for arguments of the function. Automatically parses help routines for context-sensative help to these arguments. The interface essentially a wrapper to some tcltk routines to both simplify and facilitate GUI creation. More advanced tcltk routines/GUI objects can be incorporated into the interface for greater customization for the more experienced.

Package clustvarsel updated to version 1.2 with previous version 1.1 dated 2006-11-30

Author: Nema Dean and Adrian E. Raftery
Title: Variable Selection for Model-Based Clustering
Description: The selection method uses either a greedy search or headlong search. The greedy search at each step either checks all variables not currently included in the set of clustering variables singly for inclusion into the set or checks all variables in the set of clustering variables singly for exclusion.The headlong search only checks until a variable is included or excluded (i.e. does not necessarily check all possible variables for inclusion/exclusion at each step) and any variable with evidence of clustering below a certain level at any stage is removed from consideration for the remainder of the algorithm. Each variable's evidence for being useful to the clustering given the currently selected clustering variables is given by the difference between the BIC for the model with clustering (allowed to vary over 2 to a maximum number of groups and any of the different covariance parameterizations allowed in mclust) using the set of clustering variables including the variable being checked and the sum of BICs for the model with clustering (allowed to vary over 2 to a maximum number of groups and any of the different covariance parameterizations allowed in mclust) using the set of clustering variables without the variable being checked and the model for the variable being checked being conditionally independent of the clustering given the other clustering variables (this is modeled as a regression of the variable being checked on the other clustering variables).

Title: Fractional Factorial designs with 2-level factors
Description: This package creates regular and non-regular Fractional Factorial designs. Furthermore, analysis tools for Fractional Factorial designs with 2-level factors are offered (main effects and interaction plots for all factors simultaneously, cube plot for looking at the simultaneous effects of three factors, full or half normal plot, alias structure in a more readable format than with the built-in function alias). The package is currently subject to intensive development; structures and even function names may change in the future.
