I am very happy to announce the availability of the new version
of our multivariate data analysis and graphical display software
ade4, which is now available as a package for R :

R is free and runs on all kinds of computers : Windows PC, Macintosh
with MacOS 8.6 to 9.1 and Mac OS X, Linux and all sorts of Unix

The ade4 package is available in the "contributed packages" area of
all the servers of the CRAN archives network. Please use the nearest
mirror :

Sources (R and C languages) are freely available, as the package is
now distributed under the GPL licence. Pre-compiled binary versions
of the package are also available for the Windows and MacOS systems :

The main functions include one-table (PCA, COA, MCA, PCO, etc.),
two-tables (PCAIV, Co-inertia, CCA, etc.) and k-tables multivariate
data analysis methods, with Monte-Carlo tests and many graphical
display methods. A complete documentation with many ecological
example data sets is also available.

The classical version of the ADE4 software is of course still
available here :
