- Fixed: In predict.ncvsurv, when applied to models with saturation issues.
- Fixed: Small memory leak in ncvsurv.

- New: Support for fitting survival models added (ncvsurv), along with predict, plot, and cv.ncvsurv support functions. Currently, Cox models are the only type of survival model implemented.
- New: Parallelization support for cv.ncvreg (with help from Grant Brown)
- Fixed: In cv.ncvreg, when attempting to use leave-one-out cross-validation (thank you to Cajo ter Braak for pointing this out)
- Removed: ncvreg_fit; it may return in a future version of the package.

- New: Automatically coerces X to matrix and y to numeric if possible

- New: Added vertical.line and col options to plot.cv.ncvreg
- Fixed: Bug in axis annotations with plot.cv.ncvreg when model is saturated

- Internal: .Call now used instead of .C

- New: Options in plot.cv.ncvreg to plot estimates of r-squared, signal-to-noise ratio, scale parameter, and prediction error in addition to cross-validation error (deviance)

- Fixed: Error in definition/calculation of cross-validation error and standard error
- Fixed: Bug that arose if lambda was scalar (instead of a vector)

- Fixed: Intercept for logistic regression was not being calculated for lamda=0
- Internal: standardization more efficient
- Internal: cdfit_ now returns loss (RSS for gaussian, deviance for binomial)

- Documentation: Fixed formatting error in citation.

- Changed: plot.ncvreg: Made the passing of arguments for plot.ncvreg more flexible, so that user can pass options concerning both the plot and the lines
- Changed: plot.ncvreg: Changed some of the default settings with respect to color (hcl instead of hsv) and line width

- Documentation: Updated documentation for cv.ncvreg.Rd, which no longer agreed with the function usage (this was an oversight in the release of version 2.2)

- New: plot.cv.ncvreg for plotting cv.ncvreg objects
- Changed: Divorced cross-validation from fitting in cv.ncvreg. From a user perspective, this increases flexibility, although obtaining the model with CV-chosen regularization parameter now requires two calls (to ncvreg and cv.ncvreg). The functions, however, are logically separate and involve entirely separate methods.
