• fixed bugs in survival families: * offset in all survival families was based on max(survtime) instead of max(log(survtime)); * offset in CoxPH can't be computed from Cox Partial LH as constants are canceled out; Use fixed offset instead;
  • speed up checking of manual by changing some computations (e.g. reduce mstop) or exclude code from checking via \dontrun{}
  • removed dependency on ipred (replaced with TH.data)
  • small improvements in manual
