Greetings, R users!

It is with pleasure that I am announcing the release of msmtools package on CRAN:


msmtools provides a fast and general method for restructuring classical longitudinal data into augmented ones. The reason for this is to facilitate the modeling of longitudinal data under a multi-state framework using the 'msm’ package by Chris Jackson.
The tools is fitted for longitudinal datasets in which events are localized in time (i.e. a starting and an ending time are present). The method is efficient and fast and thus is suitable when dealing with highly dimensional datasets.

The package also includes two graphical goodness-of-fit tools which can roughly assess the behaviour of the Markov model.
I hope you’ll find the package useful for your work!
