Thanks to Kit Baum, version 3.1 of -rfl- is now available from the SSC
The main changes in the new version are listed below, followed by 
installation instructions. For those who don't know about -rfl-, a 
general description is to be found at the bottom of this announcement.

Version 3.1 offers more convenience...
1) You can now open files with -rfluse- or from rfl's menu,
   without having to clear the memory and close log files before. 
   A dialog similar to rfl's main dialog will pop up
   and ask you how the data in memory and open log files should be handled.
   The close and clear entries in the menu are thus obsolete and not
   added to the menu any more.

... and some bug fixes:
2) The file entries in rfl's menu would be erased if you'd set 
   "Rewrite rfl's menu" and tried to open a file while data were 
   in memory or a log file was open. This has been fixed.
3) The percentage of free memory would not show with really big
   file sizes. This has been fixed.

As always, bug reports, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Type -ssc describe rfl- for a package description or -ssc install
rfl- to install. To update, type -ssc install rfl.pkg, replace-.
After installation of the new version, you must type -discard-
in the command window if you've invoked -rfl-, -rfluse-, or
-rflsetmenu- in the same Stata session in which you installed the update.

General description:
rfl resembles a most recently used files list (called MRU in other Windows
programs) allowing the user to open a file from a list of previously opened
files. Every file opened with rfl is added to the list of recently used files.
In addition, the user can set the memory allocated to Stata,
attach a short description to each file opened, and open appropriate
log and cmdlog files, if she wishes so. If data are present in memory at the
time rfl is called, the user may save and close open files from within
rfl's dialog. In addition, rfl can place its own menu under Stata's User menu
for easy access to the most recently opened files.
-rfl- supports file names of any length, even in Stata's non-SE
Intercooled. Stata 8.2 is required. Version 3.1 runs on all platforms.
