Lone Wolf have posted details of some of the changes coming in version 3.3 of Army Builder.

From their announcement:

The latest update for Army Builder will be released this Fall. We wanted to give all of you a heads up as to what will be included in the update so you can all start getting excited now.

Customizable output: By writing an XSLT file, users can generate totally customizable Army Builder output for their rosters. You’ll also be able to create game-specific output formats, to make your rosters look great and fit in with whatever you’re playing.

Set your own unit images: Users will be able to add their own unit images, either local images or images downloaded from the web. These images can then be shown while you’re creating an army.
Widescreen mode: Those of you with larger monitors will now get the option of a new set of info windows to show beside your roster. You’ll be able to show all sorts of exciting options, like displaying unit images, showing roster statistics, roster validation info, and other assorted output.

Improved info windows: We’ll be adding a third info window for systems that can support the larger space. This will include a splitter to let you control the size of each info window, plus we’ll be adding a separator between the available units list and the info windows, to let you change how much space is available for each.

Tournament text output: V3.3 will let you output your roster in a format tailored for tournament organizers, showing all point costs and nothing else.

Improved Select Game System form: Instead of always loading a game from the Select Game System form and then picking a saved roster, you’ll be able to directly choose a roster to load, getting you started that much faster.

Card output: For games that use cards (like Malifaux), Army Builder V3.3 will now support printable card output so you can print the cards for models yourself.

Improved available units grid: V3.3 will restructure the available units grid to enhance the organization of units, making it easier to locate and add the units you want.

Better Windows 7 support: Army Builder will now work without requiring elevated permissions, no matter where it is installed, plus we’ll be including jump list integration (being able to right-click the Army Builder icon and launch a roster or game directly).

Many more minor features and improvements designed to make it easier for users and data file authors to use Army Builder.
