Hi all,

I found some past threads that some of you (Michael Blasnik) was
considering tweaking -nnmatch-, probably with Mata. On ssc I don't see
the package updated. Did anything come out of this? Or maybe there is
some consensus on another matching package offering better
performance? (Though -nnmatch- made it to the Stata Journal.)

Or another way to put this: I think David Drukker and others are
working on implementing newer Imbens-Abadie matching estimators (one
is useful for VCEs too even with regular regressions). Is there a
draft code available somewhere?

Here is their Mata code for propensity score matching: (from here:
Here is their latest paper why this might be useful for VCEs:

It would be great to have anything along those lines. But I would
rather not sink hours into something that David and his team are doing
