Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of -estout- is 
available from the SSC Archive.

To install the update, type

 . adoupdate estout, update

or

 . ssc install estout, replace

The most prominent changes are related to -estout-'s 
-fmt()- suboption (in -cells()- and -stats()-). Two 
alternatives to official Stata's hard-to-type display
formats are available now:

o A fixed display format may now be specified as a 
  single integer. The integer is interpreted as the 
  number of decimal places to be displayed. For 
  example,

   . estout, cells(b(fmt(3)))

  will display coefficients with three decimal 
  places.

o Formats may now be specified as -a#-, where # is an 
  integer in [1,9]. This causes -estout- to choose a 
  reasonable format for each number depending on its
  magnitude. # sets the minimum number of "significant 
  digits" to be displayed. (Idea stolen from 
  -outreg2-.)

Other changes:

o -estout- has a new -numbers- option. If specified, 
  a row containing consecutive model numbers is added
  to the header of the regression table.

o If no estimates names are provided to -estout-, 
  -estout- now picks up the estimates names left 
  behind by -esto- (see -ssc describe esto-).

o -estout-'s defaults files have been renamed from 
  *.def to *.style (.style files are recognized as 
  install files by Stata, this simplifies maintenance 
  of the -estout- package file on SSC). Note that
  support for .def files will be continued. Therefore,
  you need not rename your own defaults files, if 
  you have any. 

o It is now possible to specify multiple text lines 
  in the -begin()- and -end()- label suboptions.

o The default -varwidth()- now depends on whether 
  -label- is specified or not (styles "fixed", "tex"
  and "html" only).
