Staying Up to Date

This page is a summary of which versions of concurve are currently supported and which we will provide support with depending on the context. We will mostly be supporting the most recent versions of the package, as these versions will also be using the latest version of R and other dependencies that are necessary. As such, those who continue to use older versions of the package may be out of the loop on new changes in arguments to functions, along with new functions. We urge users to consult and stay up to date with the documentation, and update their R packages as frequently as possible. An easy way to remain updated is to visit the package website, as the newest version of the package number will always be on the top left.

Previous Versions

However, we’d still like users to be able to access old versions of concurve for whatever, reason, and in addition to using GitHub, those can also be found on the CRAN archive. A page with the test results for the most recent package on CRAN can also be found here.

Another useful link will be the NEWS section, which will inform users of bugs that have been patched and new changes to old functions. However, checking CRAN is less than desirable, due to the fact that new changes (that may even be very important), will often quickly be pushed to GitHub, rather than CRAN. Thus, installing or upgrading to the newest version of concurve via the script,

install_github("zadrafi/concurve@master", dependencies = TRUE)

may be useful.

You can also directly download a tarball or zip of the most recent package version using the following link.


The package constructs interval estimates using a wide variety of functions that already exist within the R ecosystem, whether that is from base R or from community-contributed packages that are on CRAN. Here is a list of those packages. Those that are necessary to produce distributions of parameters are specified as Imports, while those that are optional and not necessary are specified as Suggests.

Those that are listed in the Suggests section are typically used for additional function
