Some more ideas:
-xtfevd- from estimates a three stage panel fixed effects vector decompostion model that allows for the inclusion of time-invariant variables and efficiently estimates almost time-invariant explanatory variables within a panel fixed effects framework
-xtpmg- from ssc aids in the estimation of "large T, large N" panel-data models where nonstationarity may be a concern. In addition to the traditional dynamic fixed effects models, it allows for the mean group (which relies on estimating N time series regressions and averaging the coefficients, see Pesaran and Smith 1995) and the pooled mean-group estimators (which relies on a combination of pooling and averaging of coefficients, see Pesaran et al. 1997, 1999).
