Mid-2010 Stocktake of SemiPar (posted 4th May, 2010)

SemiPar 1.0-3 was posted on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) in April 2010.
The SemiPar 1.0 Users' Manual: SPmanu.pdf explains what the package does.
Most of the code in SemiPar 1.0 runs as it should and works well.
However, since the initial CRAN posting in January 2005, a few users have pointed out glitches with SemiPar 1.0.
These include:
It is difficult to find the large tracts of time
needed to make these fixes to SemiPar.
Meanwhile, the mgcv package of Simon N. Wood (University of Bath, UK)
now does most of what we set out to achieve
when we started SemiPar in 1998 - and
is more rigorously maintained. So perhaps
it is better to leave SemiPar as a relic.
