Bandit version 0.5.0 released

I’ve uploaded a new version of my bandit package to CRAN, which does computation around Bayesian Bandit A/B testing. It now includes my first contribution from another author, an implementation of the “value remaining” in an experiment, thanks to Dr. Markus Loecher. I’ve also been considering automatically implementing a hierarchical model (which I now think is significantly better than assuming even an uninformative independent prior for the arms). I am hesitant to depend on JAGS (because of the trouble I’ve sometimes seen in installing it), but I might do just that in the next version…
