In addition to the usual bug fixes, this new version sports numerous enhancements,
most of which are internal. The more noteworthy ones that may be visible at the user level include:
- NMODL now has a FOR_NETCONS keyword that can be used to implement stream-specific spike-timing-dependent synaptic plasticity.
The ParallelContext and ParallelNetworkManager classes have been revised to provide greater efficiency and control of distributed network models implemented in a parallel computing environment.
The Network Buider and Channel Builder GUI tools now allow activation of "aliases" that provide direct access from hoc to internal variables such as rate constants.

For a Network Builder's aliases, start by clicking on Net Variables, then select Provide NetGUI.aliases.
From this point, usage is similar to that described for the Channel Builder.
