Apart from architecture improvements YADE incorporates a number of major bug fixes and performance improvements.

The SOS GmbH stopped development of SOSFTP in May 2012 to concentrate ongoing efforts on YADE. Version support for SOSFTP has been continued up to version 1.7.4189 (July 2014), which was the last planned general release of SOSFTP. Further version support will only be available to users that have purchased support for SOSFTP and only up to July 2016.
