There is a new version of the abind package on CRAN (abind_1.1-0).  The 
behavior of the function abind() has been enhanced slightly (it can now 
accept a list as the first argument), and changed slightly (to no longer 
add the usually annoying and useless default dimension names).  There is 
also a new function in the package: adrop(), which does approximately what 
drop() does, but allows control over which dimensions are dropped.

	* R/abind.R man/abind.Rd
	allow first argument of abind() to be a list of objects to be
	bound -- this avoids the need for do.call() when one wants to bind
	a list of objects

	* R/abind.R man/abind.Rd
	changed argument name 'use.anon.names' to the more intuitive
	'make.names' (the argument 'use.anon.names' still works)

	* R/abind.R man/abind.Rd
	changed default value for 'make.names' to FALSE (now more closely
	behaves like rbind() and cbind()).  This means that dimension
           names for dimensions that have no names are only constructed
           when requested, not by default.

	* R/adrop.R man/adrop.Rd
	added new function adrop().  This is a function like drop(), but it
           allows to user to specify which of the dimensions with extent one
           will be dropped.

Please let me know of any problems.
