Only ts has full handling of ARIMA models. It's changed a lot in R-devel.
It also provides basic function on which all the others rely.
tseries contains other models primarily of interest in economics, and
GARCH models (which are better models of stock prices). It also has
arma, which is subsumed by arima (and arima0) in R-devel.
fracdiff handles fractionally differenced models, a very specialized topic.
The dse bundle majors on multivariate time series.
