New features include hierarchical clustering based on lambda sets and
edge betweennes, and the mapping of attributes to polar coordinates.

Other unique features include:

* a comprehensive suite of layout algorithms,
  including centrality and status layouts and
  the most advanced facilities for dynamic layout
* an integrated graphical interface to RSiena
* an integrated R console 
* an interface to KNIME, a data mining workflow tool
* more efficient implementations for many analytic routines
* advanced attribute management, including dyad attributes
* explicit handling of unconfirmed ties
