Dear gretl users,
this is just to let you know that the package loss_functions.gfn has
been removed from the package server. It seemed to have some issues and
the package author was not available (via email) to address them.
If you need to do something with forecast error losses you might try out
the "FEP" package (Forecast evaluation package). In the version just
uploaded today there is a new function getLoss which provides
calculations according to some popular loss functions.
However, FEP and the function getLoss are by no means intended to be a
1:1 replacement for loss_functions. If you used loss_functions before
and you're missing some functionality, we would be interested in hearing
from you (via the list).
