It features total modularity (a frontend, plugins, outputs, and sources), new documentation, the beginnings of programmability (conditions and input/output), internal variables with 40 operations, Google/IMAP/Dict sources, hundreds of bugfixes, and BBCode usage.

        Release Notes: Dozends of bugfixes were made, including some serious ones. Shortcuts/batches with parameters are now possible, allowing you to write mini-programs for frequently used database queries. Support for commit/rollback, an SQL output module, and more colored output were added. The documentation was updated. Beware that an Interbase/ADO fix was made in CVS.

            Release Notes: Many serious bugs were fixed. New features include output coloring, table description, output redirection (file), piping (commands), and forwarding (to host:port) in specifiable format. Comfort enhancements were made, including the use of names instead of ID numbers. Shortcuts were enhanced with comments. Input batches, shellcommands, and manual updates are now possible. This release only supports Ruby version 1.7.x or higher (due to casting issues).
