Thanks to Kit Baum, an update to the -estout- package is available
from SSC. -estout- is used to compile regression tables.

To install the update, type

 . ssc install estout, replace

or use the -adoupdate- command.

Changes:

o estout

  - -estout- has new -starkeep()- and -stardrop()- options to keep/drop
    the significance stars for certain coefficients/equations. This is
    useful, for example, if you want to suppress the significance stars
    for auxiliary parameters.

  - Options such as drop() or keep() in -estout- have a new -relax-
    suboption to allow the specified list to contain elements for which
    no match can be found. Actually, the suboption has been there
    before, but now it is documented.

  - Tab characters in defaults files could cause problems. This is
    fixed.

  - The -none- label suboption in -estout- can now be specified without
    the comma. That is, you may now type, e.g., -collabels(none)- instead
    of -collabels(, none)-.

  - -eqlabels("",none)- in -estout- did not work as advertised in the
    documentation. This is fixed.

  - The -mlabels()- option in -estout- has a new -titles- suboption to
    force usage of the titles of the stored estimation sets.

  - -estout- options such as -prehead()- or the -begin()- and -end()-
    label suboptions are now smarter in finding out whether you want to
    insert multiple lines or just a single line. The rule now is to print
    a single line unless the specified string contains double qoutes, in
    which case each token is printed on a separate line. For example,
    -prehead(one two three)- would have resulted in three lines, each
    containing one word, in earlier versions, but is now printed on one
    line as "one two three". If you want to print multiple lines, enclose
    each line in double quotes, e.g.: -prehead("line one" "line two")-.

o esttab

  - The RTF code written by -esttab- could not always be displayed
    correctly by older RTF-Readers. This is fixed.

  - -addnotes()- in -esttab- now prints just one line unless the
    specified text contains double qoutes, in which case each token
    is printed on a separate line.

  - The rule to determine the model titles in -esttab- slightly changed.
    Specifying -mtitles- now ensures using the titles of the stored
    estimation sets as the model titles.

o eststo

  - -eststo- did not pass through the caller version if used as a prefix
    command. This is fixed.

o estadd

  - -estadd- subcommands such as -estadd beta- or -estadd summ- now
    support variables with time-series operators.
