Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -moremata- package 
is available from SSC. To install the update, type

 . adoupdate moremata, update

New functions:
 o mm_ranks(): ranks/cumulative frequencies
 o mm_gini(): Gini coefficient
 o mm_colvar(): variance, by column
 o mm_meancolvar(): mean and variance, by column
 o mm_variance0(): population variance
 o mm_meanvariance0(): mean and population variance
 o mm_nunique(): count number of distinct values
 o mm_nuniqrows(): count number of unique rows
 o mm_npanels(): count number of panels
 o mm_fastlinbin(): fast linear binning

Changes:

 o The number of files in the package has been reduced 
   from around 60 to 26. For example, there is one big 
   source file now instead of a single file for each 
   function.  

 o mm_ipolate() has new (more intuitive) syntax and is 
   faster. However, extrapolation is no longer supported.

 o Various other function have been improved.
