Thanks to Alan Riley for the information, which gives us something to look forward to. I am also looking forward to factors, and to factor parsing, and to expanded specific factor varlists, and to the other programming advances described in
which will be useful in writing the next generation of resultsset-processing programs. Thanks in advance to StataCorp for all this (and graphic markups too).

Best wishes

Roger Newson ( asked if StataCorp would
provide users a way to write their own PDF 'manual' entries:

We want users to be able to link from their help files to PDF
documentation they write.  This will be a project which will be done
during Stata 11 and released as a free update along the way.  As part
of that, we will release a set of LaTeX styles and macros which you
can use to create user-written documentation in similar style to the
official Stata documentation.
