Package metadialog has been installed on the SSC archives.

metadialog provides Stata dialog boxes for the publicly
available meta-analysis commands.  Dialog boxes were introduced 
in Stata version 8, so this package is useful only if you have 
installed that version. 

The package also provides the commands needed to create a 
Meta-Analysis sub-menu on the StataCorp-defined User menu.

You may choose not to create the menu and, instead, run the 
dialogs directly from the Stata8 command line via the db name 
command.  If so,

---------------------------------------------------------------------

The dialogs were written for a specific version of each program file, 
as listed above.  If you do not have this version installed, you 
should obtain that version before using the related dialog. 

You can install the metadialog package from within Stata8 by use of
the -net install metadialog- command.  The commands needed to create  
a Meta-analysis menu are documented in help file meta_dialog.hlp, 
which is installed with the dialogs.

Please note that an earlier version of this package was silently
installed on the SSC archives about two months ago.  Since then, a 
number of meta-analysis programs have been changed, a few minor bugs 
were fixed in some of the dialogs, and all dialogs were modified to 
provide a consistent format.  If you installed the earlier version 
you should reinstall the new package, replacing any files previously
installed.
