Version 0.1-3 of the Rborist Random Forest package can now be downloaded
from CRAN. This version follows closely on the short-lived 0.1-2, which failed
to install on Solaris.

The new version features incremental performance improvements, as well as
internal changes needed to support a sparse representation envisioned for the
next release. All reported bugs have been repaired, including a problem with
small forest sizes revealed by the Caret package.

Thanks are due to a number of people whose comments and contributions helped
ensure a good release. These include Carlos Ortega, Christopher Brown, junwen
Huang, David Shaub and the Caret team.
