    Release Notes: Right-Angle associations are in. This is more important than it sounds. A number of really annoying bugs are fixed, including a crash bug. The various Actions have been refactored. One result of this is the removal of the ActionFactory class from the project. A file allows this release to run using French resource strings.

      Release Notes: Package diagrams have been added--Thorn now supports all 9 UML diagrams. Support was also added for Dynamic Java macros. Interfaces can now be drawn in "lollipop" form. When dragging an interface, class or package and dropping it onto a package on a diagram, the project tree is similarly updated to reflect the new hierarchy. You can now create new diagram items directly onto container items in a diagram. The Delete key is now context sensitive (and works).
