[R] Stata files

I have a client who uses Stata 11.

Can anyone advise me on ways of transferring data from this version of 
Stata to R?

Reading the documentation for read.dta in package foreign it seems it 
only allows for versions up to Stata 10. I don't know Stata at all but a 
  bit of poking around on their website led me to believe Stata 11 
couldn't write in Stata 10 format. However Stata 11 can write Excel 
files in XML, so presumably .xlsx files.

Any advice, correction of my misconceptions, etc. gladly received.
