A new release of the Module - it adds a secondary sidebar (disabled by default and pretty ugly AFAIK, but something for people to work with)
The main horizontal menu can now be replaced by placing a menu block in the correct region.
BEWARE - Some region names have been changed, so when updating a live site you WILL need to move the blocks into the correct regions and if this was previously done programatically, you may also need to update some code.
The Sidebar has been Renamed to Sidebar Primary, the three footer regions have been renamed too.
