(*) Technical information for those interested: To move to 64-bit OS X,
we are having to do more work than would typically be necessary to
port Stata to a new 64-bit operating system. For 64-bit
applications, Apple requires that the GUI be written with the GUI
API Cocoa, whereas Stata has been written with the Carbon API.
This means that we are completely rewriting the interface using
Cocoa. While this is time-consuming, we will be able to take advantage
of features provided by Cocoa that are unavailable in Carbon.

That's great to hear. I presume that means that the 32-bit version will also become a Cocoa app?
