Congrats on a rich and mature update. I was wondering what books you might recommend for those of us new to the Bayesian/MCMC approach to SEM estimation.
All the best,

Thanks from the whole Mplus team.
Funny you should ask about Bayes books - I have a about a dozen sitting on the floor. Many are good. Two stand out so far:
Gelman, Carlin, Stern & Rubin (2004). Bayesian data analysis. - My favorite among "advanced" texts.
Lynch (2010). Introduction to applied Bayesian statistics and estimation for social scientists. - A somewhat more applied book
Lots of good articles as well. I will reference some of them in my writing "A brief introdution to using Bayes in Mplus", which will be posted before too long.
