survsim 4.0 - even more multi-state models

survsim can now simulate survival data from a semi-Markov or multiple timescale multi-state model, and is about 70% faster

survsim 3.1 - multi-state models

survsim can now simulate survival data from a Markov multi-state model, defined by general transition-specific hazard functions

A long overdue update to survsim

survsim can now simulate survival data from a parametric distribution, a user-defined distribution, from a fitted merlin model, or from a general cause-specific hazards competing risks model
