QUERY> Pali Bhikkhuni vibhanga (Goodell)

I am asking this question on behalf of a colleague:

Are there any other modern English translations of the Pali Bhikkhuni vibhanga since Horner's work?

I am aware of Thanissaro's work (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/vin/sv/bhikkhuni-pati.html), which relies on Mohan Wijayaratna, Buddhist Nuns: The Birth and Development of a Woman's Monastic Order (Sri Lanka, 2010). Is there anything else?
