msos v1.1.1 Released: House keeping and CRAN Task View Status for Teaching Statistics!

Wow how time has flown. It’s been almost three years since the last update to msos R package, which was the second ever R package I created. msos serves as the companion package to Professor Emeritus John Marden’s Multivariate Statistics: Old School, which is used in STAT 571: Multivariate Analysis course at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).

Within this update, the package internals were greatly improved. The crux of the work was in ensuring code style consistency throughout the package. This task was made trivial through styler::style_pkg() by Lorenz Walthert. Documentation also received a light refresh as well. Though, saving the best for last, the package is now listed alongside its textbook on the CRAN Task View: TeachingStats under “Packages associated with Statistics books.” For more information, please see the full NEWS release below.
