What interests me personally is whether variable/dataset labels can now
consist of more than 80 characters. In my view, this is a huge
limitation and should be changed.

(Perhaps for StataCorp)

Are there any differences in the .dta files produced by Stata 11
compared
with those produced by Stata 10? (which is to say, under Stata 11, will
we
need to use -saveold- or a new version of Stat/Transfer to maintain
backward
compatibility with Stata 10?)

Thanks, looking forward to Release 11, especially the Manuals in pdf.

Phil
