Hi all,

I have uploaded an update of the interval package, which calculates nonparametric maximum likelihood estimates (NPMLE) of distributions and exact or asymptotic weighted logrank-type tests for interval censored data. An important part of the update is that now the default initial estimate of the NPMLE uses the MLEcens package and is much faster. This increases the speed of the logrank-type tests as well. Other changes are listed in the NEWS file.

For details on the package see vignette("intervalPaper").
