1. arch now allows you to fit models assuming that the disturbances follow Student's
t distribution or the generalized error distribution, as well as the Gaussian
(normal) distribution. Specify which distribution to use with the distribution()
option. You can specify the shape or degree-of-freedom parameter, or you can let
arch estimate it along with the other parameters of the model.
