Stata 10 announced

Yesterday, StataCorp announced that Stata 10 will be available from June 25. Apart from a bunch of new routines, a main attraction will be their new graph editor which might well resolve major nightmares for users. Also it appears that there is now a way to copy & paste results to other applications without loosing the formating. Overall the new version looks great, if you're so inclined.
