### Draft chapters of a book on lme4

*Douglas Bates*- 2010-02-22 09:10 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

Draft chapters of a book entitled "lme4: Mixed-effects modeling with R" are available under the book link on http://lme4.R-forge.R-project.org/

### Data/Examples for lme4 - moved to R-forge

*Martin Maechler*- 2009-07-28 13:12 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

The three packages, "SASmixed", "mlmRev" and "MEMSS" with examples and data sets for mixed effect models have now been moved from

### lme4 0.999375-x now on CRAN

*Douglas Bates*- 2008-06-24 08:00 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

Starting with release 0.999375-16, new releases of the lme4 package will be available on CRAN, in addition to the R-forge repository. Much has changed relative to the earlier CRAN versions.

### Alpha release of lme4_1.0.0

*Douglas Bates*- 2008-02-02 14:30 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

Version 0.999375-1 of the lme4 package is now available on R-forge. This is the alpha test release for lme4_1.0.0. Currently mcmcsamp and nlmer need a bit of work but lmer and glmer should be ok. Please test and report bugs, preferably directly to the bug tracker.

### Pre-alpha release of lme4

*Douglas Bates*- 2008-01-06 20:14 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

The lme4 package now passes its tests. The mcmcsamp function is still broken so this is not yet the alpha release of lme4_1.0.0

### Evaluation of the conditional modes

*Douglas Bates*- 2007-12-17 18:07 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

I still haven't debugged the code for determining the conditional modes of the random effects in a GLMM. (It does apparently work for a NLMM.) This is in the C function cond_mode with an interface from R as mer_condMode. I have inserted verbose debugging code triggered by negative values of the verbose argument. For some reason the early iterations appear successful but around iteration 2 or 3 it gets stuck.

### SVN tree for lme4 moved to R-forge

*Douglas Bates*- 2007-11-12 09:28 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

The SVN tree for the lme4 package has been moved to R-forge. What is on R-forge now is what had been called the gappy-lmer branch. It is currently under development but usable. The major problem with it at present is that the results for generalized linear mixed models are wrong. The linear mixed models are, as far as I know, working properly and should be faster and more reliable than in earlier versions.

### Version 0.99875-8 uploaded to CRAN

*Douglas Bates*- 2007-09-28 00:01 - lme4 - Mixed-effects models

Version 0.99875-8 of the lme4 package has been uploaded to CRAN. This version fixes the problem of missing names of the components of the random effects in the table of estimated variances and correlations of the random effects.
