Enhanced file viewing Users will be able to view an expanded array of files, provided they have an application that will run the file. When the user tries to view a .doc file, for example, the Client will launch MSWord, if the user has it installed.

Choice of news Server owners can now offer their users both threaded and messageboard (1.2.3 style) news.

Issue: An exploit where a malicious user can log on invisibly to a server. Solution: Fixed, no invisible users allowed.
Issue: Transport related error Solution: Functional banners. Error was caused by client attempting to connect to non-existent banner servers.
