Release Notes: The words ':TOKEN' and 'EQUATES' have been added. The library files now support virtual memory, simple garbage collection, RfC 4180-compliant parsing, SEDOL numbers, Chi square calculations, runtime macros, and several new sorting routines. Several new date and time parsing functions were added. Several beta- and gamma-related functions were added to the floating point library. The preprocessor now supports division and modulo with the new @divrm function. Lots of bugfixes were made.

Release Notes: Specific code can be executed after a failed 'WHILE' just before exiting the loop. Binary strings can be tagged individually. The library files now support UTF-8 to GBK/2 conversion (and vice versa), infix formula translation, string pattern matching, finite state machines, statistical functions, enhanced command line parsing and the full range of ANS Forth floating point words for ZEN float. The preprocessor now supports string parsing with custom delimiters, macros within macros, and a string stack. A Markov engine and an infix-to-postfix converter were added to the examples.
