 Interface Changes:
	forward selections now requires that the user specify the original number of features for FDR adjustment.
	FDR BH p-value correction added into the forward selection algorithms: ForwardSelection.Model.Bin.R and ForwardSelection.Model.Res.R

		Before finding the optimal feature to add, it ranks features according to the correlation to the current residual.
Other:
	Vignettes added
	OPENMP removed from Makevars

Changes from FRESA.CAD 3.0.0 to FRESA.CAD version 3.0.1

outcheck.txt was removed from the package.

Changes from FRESA.CAD 2.2.1 to FRESA.CAD version 3.0.0

FRESA.CAD now has the ability to create gene signatures and a simple interface for BSWiMS model generation.
The BSWiMS modeling returns a bagged model after finding a set of candidate models.

Enhancements:
	New functions:
	 -BSWiMS function added
	 -getSignature function added
	 -eB:SWIMS functionality
	 -nearestNeighborImpute for data imputation

	Software improvements:
	 -c++ source code reviewed for efficiency
	 -bootstrappValidation Variable elimination functions rewritten. Now they attempt to provide models at optimal performance. 
	 -CrossValidation now is using a reduced data set.
Interface Changes:
	medianPredict now is called ensemblePredict
	Loop_threshold removed from FRESA.Model and cross-validation
	fast=FALSE in modelFitting changed to fitFRESA=TRUE
	
Bugs:
	Several bugs corrected.
	
CRAN:
	Removed register from c++ code

Changes from FRESA.CAD 2.2.0 to FRESA.CAD version 2.2.1

Enhancements:
	meatMaps(...) 
		Class color bar next to categories 
	UnivariateRankVariables()
		Now has the option to include only tail analysis
		Now it store the beta coefficient
	rankInverseNormalDataFrame(...,strata=NA)
		Now you can specify a conditional ranking by specifying the strata
	Now we can predict results from LASSO by retuning the filtered features 
	LASSO formulas now reported.
Bugs:
	Univariate analysis of improved residuals fixed
	several minors bug fixed.

Changes from FRESA.CAD 2.1.3 to FRESA.CAD version 2.2.0

FRESA.CAD expanded its capabilities.
Now it provided Bagged models and ensemble analysis from the list of formulas created by:
	+ ForwardSelections.Models.Bin
	+ ForwardSelections.Models.Res
	+ crossValidationFeatureSelection.Bin
	+ crossValidationFeatureSelection.Res
The baggedModel function bag the formula coefficients and creates a single model from the list of formulas.
The plotModels.ROC ensemble the model predictions and creates an unique test evaluation of the ensembled models.

-Added function:
	baggedModel.R function for coefficient bagging, and variable frequency analysis
-Enhanced function:
	plotModels.ROC.R: This function provides ensemble predictions and confusion analysis table
	heatMaps.R can accept a list of five colors for its display
-c++ code revised and minor bugs corrected.
-r code revised and bugs corrected.
