It's all in -help whatsnew-. The things have really changed in a
subtle way when a wider variety of distributions to simulate from
became available -- I believe it was between releases 10 and 11. If I
had to do any Bayesian analysis, I would code everything in Mata --
just like some people who are never happy with WinBUGS and program
their Bayesian stuff in R.
