Release Notes: A threading issue that caused the engine to crash with a memory issue was fixed along with problems with RMI and a lack of parsing of arguments within function calls and starvation of network sockets within the server environment. A problem where arrays would cause objects to have an inflated refcount and cause scripts to not delete objects within the GC was fixed. Reference counting issues within the assignment of objects were fixed.

Release Notes: protocols, closures, static constructors, and destructors on classes have been added to the language. Regular expressions are now dealt with using a more powerful API rather than held within the language. A set of tools has been shipped with the release: farm, a sane build system for binaries and libraries; manual-builder, a sane XML to PDF/HTML documentation system; and feritedoc, a sane tool for generating source code documentation.

Release Notes: This release includes engine optimisation, so that scripts now run 3 to 12 times faster than before. There is much more documentation including a scripting API, a ferite C API and a developer's guide. Language additions include single line functions, ( foo ? bar1 : bar0 ) conditionals, a foreach() operator, and function/method overloading. There was major module work including sys, string, array, reflection, thread, xml, and rmi (remote method invocation). Sys changes include IPV6 support, UDP, and Unix domain socket support. Feritedoc is now insanely fast. There were also major bugfixes in the compiler.
