Which version of Stata?

m.p.
I use Stata 9.1. But, I looked at my old Statas, and the force option has been around at least since Stata 7. It is only for the exe file. The help for -update- says

"force is used with update executable to force downloading a new executable even if, based on the date comparison, Stata does not think it is necessary. There is seldom a reason to specify this option. There is no such option for update ado because, if you wanted to force the reinstallation of all ado-file updates, you would need only to erase the UPDATES directory. You can type sysdir list to see where the UPDATES directory is on your computer; see sysdir."

I'm just puzzled why Stata said the executable was up to date. Maybe there is a temporary glitch in the Stata servers?
