This is quite correct but still likely to be misunderstood.

-outreg- (SSC, SJ) has indeed been revamped radically and is a very
different and versatile program.

But it's important to know that it is now quite independent of -outreg2- (SSC).

For all but those familiar with a rather tangled history, this is
likely to be confusing. As a brief and I trust factual summary:
-outreg- came first, but the developer John Gallup did not publicly
develop it for some years. So -outreg2- (Roy Wada) was offered as a
enhancement. Then John returned with a new -outreg-. Development of
both is now quite separate.

At the time of writing, -outreg2- on SSC was last revised in 2010. It
follows that statements in its documentation about -outreg- are in
many cases quite out-of-date.
