Thanks to Kit Baum, version 3.3 of -rfl- is now available from the SSC

The main changes in the new version are listed below, followed by
installation instructions. For those who don't know about -rfl-, a
general description is to be found at the bottom of this announcement.

1) Bug fix:
- When "other log file" was chosen while the option "cmdlog selection
  follows log selection" was checked, the cmdlog file would be given
  a name that didn't exist and therefore not be loaded.
  This is fixed. The wrong cmdlog filenames in rfl.log will be corrected
  automatically when you first invoke -rfl- after the update 
  (this will work in most cases, however to be sure please
  check the update's results.)

I noticed a second bug of only minor importance.
When a description is edited in -rfl-'s dialog and another entry
is marked in the files list before "Done" is pressed, the radio button
"by description" will be greyed out and the button "Change description"
will be hidden. This bug is not yet corrected, but it does not seriously
affect -rfl-'s functionality. Simply don't forget to press "Done" if you edit
a description. But if you forget and need these buttons, simply cancel
-rfl- and invoke it again. They will be present together with your unchanged

As always, bug reports, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Type -ssc describe rfl- for a package description or -ssc install
rfl- to install. To update, type -ssc install rfl.pkg, replace-.
After installation of the new version, you must type -discard-
in the command window if you've invoked -rfl-, -rfluse-, or
-rflsetmenu-, or if you've opened a data file from -rfl-'s menu,
in the same Stata session in which you installed the update.

General description:
rfl resembles a most recently used files list (called MRU in other Windows
programs) allowing the user to open a file from a list of previously opened
files. Every file opened with rfl is added to the list of recently used files.
In addition, the user can set the memory allocated to Stata,
attach a short description to each file opened, and open appropriate
log and cmdlog files, if she wishes so, all in one step.
If data are present in memory at the
time rfl is called, the user may save and close open files from within
rfl's dialog. In addition, rfl can place its own menu under Stata's User menu
for easy access to the most recently opened files.
-rfl- supports file names of any length, even in Stata's non-SE
Intercooled. Stata 8.2 is required. Let's see whether it runs in Stata 9 (and 
whether Stata 9 makes it obsolete).
Version 3.3 runs on all platforms.

The package consists of the following files:
rfldlg.idlg (different for Win/Mac)
rflCMdlg.idlg (different for Win/Mac)
