Thanks for the publicity. Let me clarify.  

-distplot- and -ordplot- were separate 
programs. The key difference is that 
when I last did a major revision of -distplot- 
I incorporated the most important features 
of -ordplot-. 

-ordplot- is still accessible via SSC 
but it is (a) written for Stata 6, so 
doesn't support Stata 8 graphics (b) 
frozen as was. 

-distplot- has been published, maintained 
and discussed through the STB and SJ, 
as -search distplot- will indicate. 
It now supports Stata 8 graphics.
