The 11Jun2002 update of Stata brings a welcome cosmetic improvement (item 11 in help whatsnew): 'net describe', which is used by 'ssc describe', can now provide a much lengthier description of a downloadable package. This means that when a SSC package has a long 'abstract', the full abstract as well as author information and date of last update will be displayed. For example, 'ssc describe ivreg2', prior to this fix, will provide only a subset of that information. This should be quite helpful for SSC users, who now can get the full information available in the package file on screen.

Thanks
Kit
