Normally we do not announce on statalist the availability of the
latest executable and ado-file updates, but the one we just made
available (09sep2003) has lots of new features.  There are 45
items listed -- many of them detailing new commands / options /
features.

Some of the highlites are

   o  Stata can now read and write SAS XPORT Transport format
      files.

   o  Stata now allows multiple variable, value, and data labels,
      such as labels in different languages.

   o  Stata now has multiple-comparison tests after -anova- and
      -manova-.  In addition, specifying contrasts is now easier.

   o  A new file-editing/file-filtering command makes it possible
      to replace one set of characters with another; this may be
      done on files of unlimited size and on both binary and
      ASCII files.

   o  Stata now supports TIFF files.

   o  Under Stata for Windows, the Review and Variable windows may
      now be moved together with the main Stata window by holding
      Ctrl while dragging the main Stata window with the mouse.


Type -update query- (or equivalent clicking actions) and follow
the instructions for obtaining this free (for Stata 8 users)
update.
