Second, when focus is in the longitudinal outcome and we wish to correct for nonrandom dropout.

New features include:

More information can be found in the corresponding help files, and examples at http://rwiki.sciviews.org/doku.php?id=packages:cran:jm

As always, any kind of feedback (e.g., questions, suggestions, bug-reports, etc.) is more than welcome.
