Dear S-PLUS users,

For this note I'm wearing the hat of statistical developer looking for
product ideas, as opposed to company spokesmodel.

We are at the point in the development cycle where we are assessing what new
features to add to future versions of S-PLUS. In particular, I'm taking the
lead on sorting out what new statistical functionality to add. I'll compile
replies made to me personally (roosen@statsci.com), or discuss amongst
yourselves.

Some questions:

1) What statistical techniques which you use regularly are not available in
S-PLUS ?

2) What "standard" techniques does S-PLUS need to be an even more
well-rounded basic statistics package?

3) What hot new techniques should we add to S-PLUS as part of commitment to
stay on the cutting edge of statistical computing?

4) What user-contributed functions in StatLib have you found to be of both
high value and high quality, and thus contenders for inclusion in S-PLUS?

Thanks,
Charlie Roosen
