Stata does not seem to refresh the cached Mata libraries index after
new Mata libraries are installed with the package from SSC and there
is no way a package can tell Stata to do it  :(  .

Users of Stata 9 to 12 may do any of the following:
1) close Stata and restart it, or
2) type: mata mata mlib index      in the command line

Users of Stata 13 may want to request this feature from StataCorp.

For details see Mata documentation, e.g. the following extract: "Mata
automatically finds the .mlib libraries on your computer. It does this
when Mata is invoked for the first time during a session. Thus
everything is automatic except that Mata will know nothing about any
new libraries created during the Stata session."

Hope this resolves the problem.

Best,
    Sergiy Radyakin
