Dear all,

We like to announce and share the new release of bear v2.2.0. The most important new function in this release is the data analysis for replicate crossover BE study (such as 2-tr x 2-seq x 3 periods, 2x2x4... up to 2x2x6) using lme (same as SAS PROC MIXED) from R package nlme. Now we are working on parallel BE study (2x2x1). Please use "Packages" -> "Update packages" from R console to install the new version if you have installed previous version. You can browse this page for how-to-install R packages. Other new functions added in bear v2.2.0 are listed as follows:The following are some output examples obtained from bear v2.2.0.
