    * Extended or adapted function
          o lifetable :New command for life tables and Kaplan Meier plots

            [/OA /O /RR]
          o Uniform syntax for lifetable, epicurve, compact tables, ciplot
            cmd outcome ..... The outcome variable is the first one
          o Uniform options for No Confidence Interval: /NOCI
            (lifetables, ciplot)
          o SPC charts: to exclude information on central values: /NCVI
          o More table headers in control of user, see:
            set table ct ..., set lifetable header ...
    * Bugs fixed
          o /c=xxx can now be used for value labels with string variables
          o percent signs cannot be used in lines with a comment *
          o Sorting tables now correct in dialogs and /fv tables
          o Table dialog for Pareto corrected to take string variables

A decision has been made to include lifetables and Kaplan Meier plots in 
next release (v2.1). Please test this in the just uploaded build. The 
command accepts two different syntax forms:
lifetable outcome time
lifetable outcome startdate enddate

We are still clarifying some aspects of translation, which necessitates 
postponing v2.1 release. Another issue being investigated just now is 
the possibility to include new SPC graph types.

The main objective for v2.1 release is that after release a major 
rebuild will take place of structures not updated since the very first 
analysis parts and also allow for user defined add-on modules.
