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
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
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.
