  • Added all possible options to the specific boosting functions instead of passing the options via ... to mboost_fit. Closes #81.


  • Minor speed ups in df2lambda (i.e., when computing penalty parameter for the defined degrees of freedom). Changes proposed by Benjamin Christoffersen.
  • Updated kernel boosting reference. Closes #84.
  • Rebuilt package with LF instead of CRLF to fix cleanup script as requested by CRAN. Fixes #82
  • Use "old" definition of degrees of freedom in vignette("mboost", package = "mboost") to make results reproducible.


  • Fix handling of missing values in mboost and gamboost when weights are specified. Fixes #80.
