We do not have a tradition for package announcements on Bioconductor
(except the summary of new packages at release time) which I think is
too bad.

A while ago, we uploaded cqn (Conditional Quantile Normalization) to
Bioconductor devel.  The package is an implementation of a method for
normalizing RNA-Seq data, represented in a region (gene/exon) by
sample matrix.  The methodology is described in the following

in rna-seq data using conditional quantile normalization. Johns
Hopkins University, Dept of Biostatistics Working Papers, 227 (2011).
