Dear R users,

I am pleased to announce the release of the new BiplotGUI package on CRAN. Biplots are graphs in which the samples and all the variables of a data matrix are represented simultaneously. They can be very useful for exploring multivariate data.

The BiplotGUI package allows users to construct and interact with biplots as they are described in "Biplots" (Gower and Hand, 1996). In such biplots, the samples are represented as points, while the variables are represented as calibrated biplot axes. The representations are similar to ordinary scatter plots, but with all the variables represented at one time.

Version 0.0-2 of the package has the following features:

The package can be downloaded from CRAN: <http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/BiplotGUI/index.html> or a favourite mirror.

The project homepage is at <http://biplotgui.r-forge.r-project.org>. It includes screenshots and example biplots. A manual is included within the package itself, but is also available from the website.

At present, the package runs under Windows only.

I would appreciate any feedback so that the package can be further improved.
