I'm not sure, but I haven't noticed any new features. My other main 
problem with Biggles wsa the GNU plotlib produces massive postscript 
output which is a pain when trying to use your plots on places like 
astro-ph.

Stupid acronym. I should delete it. It is semi-astronomical related, and 
as I do astronomy, so I thought I'd use it :-)

It was veusz as there wasn't a veusz in google, and it sounds like "views" 
and "use"!
