   Default dictionary size is now 4MB.
   
   vi tags files can be built with tags.fs (usage like etags.fs).
   
   gforth.el mostly rewritten.
   
   S": interpreted use now ALLOCATEs the string (they live until BYE).
   
   Long word names (512MB on 32-bit systems) are now supported (change to

     stack and instruction stream).
   
   New threaded code execution method: primitive-centric (allows the
     following), hybrid direct/indirect threaded (easier portability),
     with dynamic superinstructions (typical speedup on Athlon: factor
     2).  New engine gforth-itc for dealing with some potential
     backwards-compatibility problems (see "Invoking Gforth" in the
     manual).
   
   New image file format.
