Dear R-users,

Half a year ago we put out the R package "glmmADMB" for fitting overdispersed count data.


Several people who used this package have requested additional features. We now have a new version ready. The major new feature is that glmmADMB allows Bernoulli responses with logistic and probit links. In addition there is a "ranef.glmm.admb()" function for getting the random effects.

The download site is still:


The package is based on the software ADMB-RE, but the full unrestricted R-package is made freely available by Otter Research Ltd and does not require ADMB-RE to run. Versions for Linux and Windows are available.

We are still happy to get feedback for users, and to get suggestions for improvement.

We have set up a forum at http://www.otter-rsch.ca/phpbb/ for discussions about the software.
