Dear Statalisters,

re Stata 11 release: Could any of the long-time users on the list share
their experience/problems/advice for using parallel installations of
two/more Stata installations? Do any conflicts arise between the two? It is
the first time I find myself in this kind of quandary...

I have Stata 7, 8, 9 and 10 installed on my machine, with no problems. I suppose you might have a problem if, say, a new version of a user-written program required Stata 11. Often when people update their programs that way, they also rename their old program (e.g. add an 8 to the name to indicate it is for Stata 8) and continue to keep it available.

Keeping older versions of Stata is handy if you want to make sure a program works ok with an older version. Using version control makes your programs work with future versions of Stata but does not necessarily guarantee they will work with older versions.
