Hi All! Just a couple of things after the first look at the long expected Stata 11 today: 1) In the "Variables manager" both <Manage...> buttons do not work in the unpinned mode of "Variable Properties" (nothing happens). Click the pin to fix the window and they work again. 2) In the "Data Browser" (for sysuse auto), I would expect "Filter by expression" condition t<20 to work, but Stata responds: ""Filter by expression:" is invalid". Condition trunk<20 works fine. Seems like here Stata can't unabbreviate variable names like it does everywhere else. 3) I would expect filter in "Variables manager" to support wildcards * and ? like anywhere else. E.g. (using another dataset) des t?t* storage display value variable name type format label variable label ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------totmiemc byte %8.0g miembros por hogar(consumo)tot_gast_ed float %9.0g Annual EducationExpendituressame filter in "Variables manager" results nothing Also re: "Variables Manager", I wish the same colors as in "Data browser" were used in "Variables Manager" and Variables window to highlight string and numeric variables. 4) Not a bug, but an unexpected change of the executable name: from wmpstata.exe to StataMP-64.exe. Have to check all the external programs where Stata executable names (all flavours) were hardcoded. 5) Also very alerted by inability to set mem when matrices are in memory. I'd prefer a more graduate transition, e.g. to have a separate memory area for matrices (set matmem=50mb and that will be enough for most of my matrices needs). Otherwise a very nice release of Stata 11.0.669 MP8 64-bit for Windows. Thank you.
