Dear people at r-announce

At "http://www.med.uio.no/imb/stat/addreg/",
you can now find the new package addreg (version 1.0).

It performs additive hazards regression, which is an alternative (or
supplement) to the Cox model. It results in plots that are informative
regarding the effect of covariates on survival.

I wrote it as a S-plus package, but has made some small adjustments to
make it work on R. This can now be down loaded in a separte file. 

In version 1.1 of addreg (last quarter 1997?), I'll plan to give a full
R version with the same functionality as the S-plus version.
