The brochure is just the slightest bit ahead of development and documentation.

As Kit Baum <baum@bc.edu> noted, DLLs can be called from Stata and in fact a
suite of commands to fit models to data with measurement error has been
implemented using DLLs, see http://www.stata.com/merror.  These commands were
presented in a full-day seminar at the Stata User Group Meeting in Boston, on
March 19th.

As we documented DLLs, it became clear that we wanted to make some final
changes to make using DLLs easier.  These changes were discussed at the London
Stata User Group meeting on May 19th.  The changes are almost complete and we
expect to have a web page documenting how to use DLLs with Stata up by the
first week in July.
