Main new feature is the possibility to connect to ZShaolin via SSHD from another computer. Just run the helper "z-ssh" in the shell to launch the daemon and then follow the simple instructions.
Curl is now present and working along with some more scripting fixes.
Also try "ncdu" useful to explore the directories by size occupation
