Dear useRs,
upon request, the VGAM package (currently version 0.7-1) has been
officially released on CRAN (the package has been at my website
http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~yee/VGAM for a number of years now).
VGAM implements a general framework for several classes of
regression models using iteratively reweighted least squares
(IRLS). The key ideas are Fisher scoring, generalized linear
and additive models, IRLS and vector smoothing. It is a large R
package that fits many models and distributions, usually by maximum
likelihood estimation. See below for a partial listing, or better,
http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~yee/VGAM/doc/VGAMrefcard.pdf. Some
broad categories are categorical data analysis, LMS quantile regression,
extreme value models, univariate and continuous distributions.
The package is under continual development and definitely not complete
yet. Until then it should probably be considered 'alpha software'. Nothing
is cast in iron yet, so please expect lots of changes if you use it. I
hope to add more functionality to certain parts of the package, especially
relating to inference and model selection, soon.
Re. support, this is minimal. I first have to apologize that it won't be
possible for me to answer every e-mail I receive. Sorry about this. If you
use VGAM please consult the online help plus the incomplete documentation
found at my website. Additionally, other technical details can be found
in the journal articles. On the positive side, a monographs is in the
making, however it is expected to be finished in quite a while :)
Suggestions, bug reports and other comments are very welcome.
Best regards,
Thomas Yee

Description:
Package: VGAM
Version: 0.7-1
Date: 2006-10-24
Title: Vector Generalized Linear and Additive Models
Author: Thomas W. Yee <t.yee at auckland.ac.nz>
Maintainer: Thomas Yee <t.yee at auckland.ac.nz>
Depends: R (>= 2.4.0), splines, methods, stats, stats4
Description: Vector generalized linear and additive models, and
associated models (Reduced-Rank VGLMs, Quadratic
RR-VGLMs, Reduced-Rank VGAMs). This package fits many
models and distribution by maximum likelihood estimation
(MLE) or penalized MLE. Also fits constrained ordination
models in ecology.
