Version 0.98-1 of the lme4 package and of the Matrix package are now on CRAN. This version provides the adaptive Gauss-Hermite quadrature (AGQ) method for fitting generalized linear mixed models.

A new generic function mcmcsamp has been added with a method for objects in the "lmer" (linear mixed model fit or generalized linear mixed-effects model fit) class. This function provides a Markov Chain Monte Carlo sample from the posterior distribution of the model parameters. The returned object has (S3) class "mcmc" and the diagnostic functions in the coda package can be used on it.
