Dear useRs,

Version 0.8-1 of the `party' package will appear on CRAN and its mirrors in due course. This version implements two new tools:

   o `mob', an object-oriented implementation of a recently suggested

       algorithm for model-based recursive partitioning (Zeileis, Hothorn,
       Hornik, 2005) has been added. It works out of the box for partitioning
       (generalized) linear regression models, others can be easily plugged
       in. A new vignette "MOB" describes the implementation ideas and
       provides a few examples with nice plots.

   o  `cforest', an implementation of Breiman's random forest ensemble
       algorithm based on conditional inference trees (`ctree') has been
       added and can be used to analyse censored data and weighted

Moreover, some minor issues have been addressed and are documented in the CHANGES file.

Best wishes,

Torsten, Kurt and Achim.
