JAGS - Bayesian Analysis

JAGS is used for Bayesian analysis using MCMC and stands for Just Another Gibbs Sampler.  It is an alternative to WinBUGS and can be accessed through R just like WinBUGS (via R2jags or RJags).  It will work on a Mac unlike WinBUGS.  The only problem is that most books include WinBUGS examples and not JAGS examples.  However, much of the language is similar.  I haven't had time to try it out yet but plan to in the future.  They just released an updated version: JAGS 2.2.0 if you want to check it out.
