New features

You can find the release notes/changelog in, at:

There are too many differences to list here, but the most significant new feature is related to GLM-based analyses (including for Multi-threshold Permutation Correction, Network Based Statistic, and mediation analysis). They are now significantly faster, and (in certain situations) is faster than other solutions in R.

Please let me know if you have any issues, bug reports, feature requests, etc.
