Thanks to Kit Baum, the packages -tabplot- 
and -tableplot- have been updated. 

There was some discussion of the
main programs in Stata Journal 4(2): 
190-215 (2004). 

Although not documented explicitly, 
it was legal previously to issue 
-tabplot- or -tableplot- with a 
-by()- option. However, the graphs 
produced would not be based on 
calculations subdivided by the 
argument of -by()-. This is now 
fixed. Graphs with -by()- now 
reflect the computations that 
might be expected. For example, 

. sysuse auto 
. gen himpg = mpg > 25 
. tabplot for rep78, by(himpg) 

produces a graphical representation 
of a three-way contingency table 
showing a cross-tabulation of 
-himpg-, -foreign- and -rep78-. 

If you installed -tabplot- 
or -tableplot- for version 8 
before, please reinstall using 
-ssc-. 

These fixes do not affect 
older versions of these programs
within these packages.
