The only change of note since the most recent development release (version 2.99_005) is to address issue #742.  The internal index used for matrices now uses the C locale for numeric values. Incorrect values could otherwise be returned in some locales where the comma is used as the radix character. Biodiverse now throws an exception when it encounters indexes with commas in the values, recommending that the matrix be rebuilt.
