Bitweaver 1.3.1 is now available. While primarily a bugfix release, 1.3.1 does offer up some very shiny new features, such as an upgrade from phpBB 2.0.19 to phpBB 2.0.20 and updates to the newsletter package.

It is simply impossible to list the number of modifications and updates made by the bitweaver team since the release of bitweaver 1.3. There have literally been hundreds of changes to the code in the past two weeks, and the progress on ReleaseTwo is moving along at a fantastic rate.

To quote /toggg in a post on irc: "Those guys code as devils."

Stay tuned for more information on our progress as we march towards ReleaseTwo and release 1.4.
