The difference between Stata 8 and Stata 9 graphics
is precisely explained on the StataCorp website. 

Only you can make the decision about manual purchase. 
Of course, you can postpone purchase to see how much 
you miss the manual. 

As well as missing documentation on new features, there
are always many small fixes and additions in the 
manuals in a new release that are not publicly flagged. 

One of the most crucial features of the graphics manual 
is the set of pictures. Often just browsing through 
gives you the instant impression "That's the kind of 
graph I want now" or "That kind of graph could be 
useful some day". The on-line help cannot convey 
these impressions nearly so well.
