Summary:Version 0.8 of RobASt-family of packages on CRAN soon
Project:RobASt - Robust Asymptotic Statistics

New versions 0.8 of our RobASt-family of packages are now available on CRAN.
[we have just uploaded them to CRAN]

Most importantly, we have included:

+ a quasi-MC trick by Nataliya Horbenko to better produce
random variables under complicated not necessarily
monotone transformations

+ enhanced functions
infoPlot, (plots relative information used for coordinates
of a parameter estimator)
ddPlot, (distance-distance plot)
cniperPointPlot, (cniper concept for seemingly harmless
contamination behavior)
qqplot (now gets outlier corrected versions)

+ new risks: asAnscombe, asL1, asL4
for asymptotic L1 L4 risk, and optimal bias robust estimator,
to given efficiency loss in ideal model

+ new helper methods makeIC
to apply to functions or list of functions
for easily producing (suboptimal) ICs

+ new function getReq for two ICs IC1 and IC2
to compute a radius interval where IC1 is better
than IC2 acc. to G-Risk

+ new function getMaxIneff() to compute,
for any IC of class 'IC', the maximal inefficiency
for radius r varying in [0,Inf)

+ as well as several bug fixes

For more details see the corresponding NEWS files
(e.g. news(package = "RobAStBase")
or using function NEWS from package startupmsg
i.e. NEWS("RobAStBase")).
