Thanks to Kit Baum, various packages 
on SSC have been updated as follows: 

-ciplot- plots of confidence intervals
======================================

Requires Stata 8. 
Small bug fix and improvements. 


-levels- distinct levels of integer or string variable
======================================================

Updated to Stata 8. The main change is that hitherto 
leading blanks in string values were stripped as 
a consequence of the behaviour illustrated by 
this example: 

. set obs 1 
obs was 0, now 1

. gen str37 foo = "            stuff with leading blanks" 

. local fooone = foo[1] 

. di "|`fooone'|"
|stuff with leading blanks|

This is now fixed by using the new feature illustrated 
by 

local fooone "`= foo[1]'"

As said, -levels- now requires Stata 8. A version 
for Stata 7 remains accessible as -levels7- in 
the same package. 


-ovfplot- plots of observed vs fitted
=====================================

Updated to Stata 8. 

A version for Stata 7 remains accessible as -ovfplot7- in 
the same package. 


-regplot- plots of regression fit 
=================================

Requires Stata 8. Some small fixes. 

A version for Stata 7 remains accessible as -regplot7- in 
the same package. 

Use -ssc- to install any package of use or interest 
to you.
