Changes in version 1.0-5 (2016-02-02)
o improvements in quantile estimation
Changes in version 1.0-4 (2016-01-19)
o a new algorithm for quantile estimation, again. Quantiles are
now computed by a stochastic root finding algorithm. Note
that f.quantile in the output of qmv{t,norm} is now (again)
the squared difference between the cdf evaluated at the
quantile and the level. The \code{interval} argument to the
quantile functions is used as a starting value for the
root finder when available.
o clean-ups in C and R code and documentation
Changes in version 1.0-3 (2015-07-21)
o new algorithm for quantile estimation. Quantiles are
now computed by minimising the squared distance between the
distribution function and the probability whereas previous versions
used uniroot(). The procedure is now performed multiple times with
difference random seeds in order to stabilise the results. The
\code{interval} argument to the quantile functions is IGNORED now.
Changes in version 1.0-2 (2014-12-16)
o start providing C interfaces to the underlying algorithms.
mvtnorm_C_mvtdst() directly calls Alan's FORTRAN code and
can be used in other packages via LinkingTo. See
mvtnorm/inst/C_API_Example for an example very much inspired
by the example provided in package xts.
o provide .C interfaces to the FORTRAN routines and allow switching
on/off of R' RNG.
Changes in version 1.0-1 (2014-11-11)
o replace internal MVCHNV FORTRAN FUNCTION with
R's sqrt(qchisq(p, n, FALSE, FALSE). This fixes a
problem where NaN was returned as reported by
David Charles Airey
Changes in version 1.0-0 (2014-07-08)
o After 14 years, we now feel safe enough to publish mvtnorm 1.0-0.
Many packages depend, import, or suggest mvtnorm, so this version
change also indicates that the package is now stable and, to a very
large extent, the API is frozen. We will of course continue to fix
bugs or other problems but new features are unlikely to go into this
package.
o use Authors@R in DESCRIPTION
o switch to standard NEWS format
Changes in version 0.9-99992 (2014-05-03)
o cleanups by MM
Changes in version 0.9-99991 (2014-04-25)

Changes in version 0.9-9999 (2014-04-17)

o update to version 2013-06-29 of mvtdst.f from Alan's website
(fixed a bug for 2-dim pmvt)
Changes in version 0.9-9994 (2012-12-06)
o set.seed(29)
rmvnorm(10, ...)
produces the same first ten rows as
set.seed(29)
rmvnorm(100, ...)
o as suggested by Paul Johnson . There is a new
argument pre0.9_9993 for changing back to the `old' output. This
_DOES NOT_ apply to rmvt.
Changes in version 0.9-9993 (2012-10-22)
o sigma is called `scale' matrix of {dpq}mvt, thanks to
Richard Boys for the hint
Changes in version 0.9-9992 (2012-01-19)
o qmvt(..., df = 0, ...) gave NaN
o R CMD check works on x64 with GCC 4.6.2 (Debian 4.6.2-11)
Changes in version 0.9-9991 (2011-06-10)
o tvpack wasn't working on 64bit machines. The reason
was that the wrapper SUBROUTINEs around the original
FUNCTIONs didn't return the appropriate double precision
for unknown reasons. Redefining TVTL and BVTL as FUNCTIONs
fixed the problem.
Changes in version 0.9-999 (2011-04-26)
o still problems in fix approx_interval (when !is.null(sigma));
disable for the time being
