Buzz - Thank you for your comments. I admit I am very susceptible to "update
discomfort" syndrome. However your comment about multilevel capability
sounds like a request for more statistics, not cosmetics. I would gladly
trade all this new list, GUI and fancy graphics for an effective multilevel
package that would run under Stata. Or are you suggesting that glamm8 is the
answer?
Can you provide any quantitative info on how much faster is glamm in Stata8
than under Stata 7? This is the sort of thing that would make me want to
update - not the graphics, GUI, etc.

stronger hierarchical modeling capabilities."
