with the advent of Stata 10, the commands <about> and <verinst> produce the same output. Exactly the same. This does not make sense to me.

While <about> is still documented in the reference manual, <verisnt> is not. Nor is there an entry for <verinst> in the on- line help.

I'm tempted to conclude that <verinst> has become an out-of-date command. Can anyone confirm it?

You can answer your own question by using -viewsource-.  Typing


. viewsource verinst.ado


will show you that verinst.ado is merely a wrapper for -about-:


*! version 1.2.0  10feb2007
program define verinst
        version 10

        about
end
