The Hmisc package has had a number of updates/fixes:

Changes in version 3.14-4 (2014-04-13)

* rcspline.eval: stop new logic for ignoring outer values when there

are many ties when there are also many ties on interior values. Added

new logic to use interior unique values of x when the number of unique x

is small.

* latexBuild: generalized with insert argument

* latex.default: modified to use mods of latexBuild, fixed bug with

caption.loc='bottom' (thanks: YacineH)

* latex.default: fixed bug where comma did not appear after

caption={} for ctable (thanks: Johannes Hofrichter)

* tests: fit.mult.impute.bootstrap.r: added new example (thanks:

Jane Cook)

* fit.mult.impute: added call for fit.mult.impute in returned

object, replacing call from fitter; makes update work for fit.mult.impute

* summary.formula: fixed recognition of multiple left-hand-side

variables to trigger call to summaryM (thanks: Kevin Thorpe)

* summaryM: changed group label to '' instead of 0 for formulas like

age + sex ~ 1

* Ecdf: added what argument to all functions

* nobsY: return constructed id vector

* addMarginal: instead of .marginal. being logical, make it contain

names of variables being marginalized over

* mChoice.c: fixed some inconsistencies

The rms package has also had some changes, and the survfit.formula

function has been REMOVED, replaced by the npsurv function:

Changes in version 4.2-0 (2014-04-13)

* Deprecated survfit.formula so would not overlap with function in

survival

* Added function npsurv, survplot.npsurv

* REMOVED survfit.formula

* Used new type argument to label.Surv for fitting functions

* cph: added weights argument to residuals.coxph (Thanks: Thomas Lumley)

* survfit.cph: fixed bug in using wrong type variable. Thanks:

Zhiyuan Sun

* cph: added weighted=TRUE in call to residuals.coxph (Thanks: T Lumley)

* orm.fit: improved ormfit to not try to deal with NaN in V,

assuming that step-halving will happen

Some improvements have been made in the greport package:

Changes in version 0.5-1 (2014-04-15)

* survReport: changed to use npsurv instead of survfit.formula

* exReport: changed order of output so that analysis of randomized

patients marked for exclusions appears last; use LaTeX chngpage package

to allow detailed table to go into left margin so as to be centered on page

* exReport: added adjustwidth argument

* accrualReport: allowed enrollment target N to be omitted

* exReport: fine tuning

* nriskReport: new report to show number of subjects still being

followed at each day

* Merge: added support for data.table

* nriskReport: added id() variable

* exReport: fixed bug when there is an exclusion with 0 frequency

* accrualReport: improved graphics formatting, added minrand argument

* accrualReport: added enrollmax argument, clarified notation

* exReport: added ignoreExcl, ignoreRand arguments

* all: added greportOption texwhere; default is 'gentex'; can

specify texwhere='' to write non-appendix LaTeX code to console as for knitr

* dReport: for byx for discrete Y, sense when Y is binary and use

Wilson interval instead of bootstrap; adjust SE using confidence

interval if proportion is 0 or 1

* dReport: changed discreteness non-binary classification to use

maximum number of unique values or Y instead of minimum

* add globalVariables call to nriskReport
