semtree on CRAN

As of today, the semtree package is available from CRAN:

install.packages("semtree")

Earlier versions of semtree relied on the snow and snowfall packages for parallelization; however, snow is considered superseded by CRAN and new package submissions are not supposed to depend on superseded packages. Therefore, semtree now uses the more recent parallel package. In the example script on this website, I provide examples how to use the new way of growing SEM forests and computing variable importance using the parallel package. I also made some changes to the signatures of semforest and semtree for consistency. Please see the manual on how to use them:


?semforest
?semtree
