I'm growing my list. :)

(1) support for factors throughout Stata instead of xi

I feel this is a useful convenience feature. It is present is the other packages like SAS and R.

(2) support for unicode

Note that SPSS 16 had added this, along with a JAVA interface, Python scripting, and R plug ins. How many times have people asked for special characters in graphics? Stata graphics are the best on the market, except for this feature.

(3) robust reporting capability

Splus 8 from Insightful Corp has added an independent clinical trials analysis and reporting module completely conversant with SAS macros if needed. Duck and cover SAS.
