These features arein the Mercurial repository on the googlecode project 
page. If you wish to test them you can get them from the repository. 
It's not quite time for a release yet.

Running headers and footers should now be centered.

Braille page numbers can now be turned off for an entire document by 
using the new configuration setting numberBraillePages no 

The library will now initialize itself when you give it a different 
configuration file. the dontInit lmode bit has been dropped. It never 
did much anyway. Instead, if you wish to force the library to initialize 
you can use the doInit bit.

Mode bits can now be specified using the mode configuration setting. If 
several are needed they can be separated by commas. 

The utd parts of liblouisutdml are currently the focus of development. 
If you pull the changes from the repository you will notice that several 
modules for various conversions have been added. These are merely stubs 
at the moment. the configuration file sample-utd.cfg may be of interest. 
The conversion which replaces the text in an xml file with its 
translation is currently being worked on.
