Thanks to Kit Baum, the -indexplot- package has been updated on SSC for Stata 8.Can we still listen to Crosby, Still, Nash and Young if we upgrade to version 8?
First a few general comments:
The advent of Stata 8, and in particular its major new graphics functionality, has drastic implications for most previous user-written graphics add-ons. Many are superseded by new commands, or made obsolete by new features of new commands, and so must be consigned to the oblivion of history, together with MS-DOS, Rubik's cubes, Monkees albums, hula hoops and zoot suits -- except of course if you are using Stata 7 or some other previous version.
