    2. MODFLOW HFB parameters
    3. MODFLOW SFR parameters
    4. Better handling of unsupported MODFLOW packages in the Name file
    5. Model checker support for DRT, ETS and MNW packages
  3. PEST
    1. Support for the latest version of PEST.
    2. Parallel PEST
      Now you can run PEST in parallel on your own computer to take advantage of machines with multiple cores

    2. SEEP2D model automatically initialized from conceptual model
    3. SEEP2D boundary conditions automatically mapped from conceptual model (no need to run Map -> SEEP2D)
    4. Easily create all coverage types in one step
    5. Feature object types automatically assigned based on coverage attributes
    6. Allow only one conceptual model
  6. New Redraw Display command to force recreation of all the display lists
