I received the newsletter yesterday and this version got some small improvements and fixes since the first release eg. Key strokes support in plugin, Resizable user interface, 6 color themes, Support for Soft Knobs, Data sync wizard...
I have not found a announcement on KvR so it could be interesting for Access Virus A/B/C/XL/Indigo users ;)

If you never heard about the Virus Commander:
It's a programmer/librarian for Virus A/B/C/XL/Indigo.
It works as a FX plug-in (but audio is not handled by the VCommander) so it don't needs complex routing with midi tracks and stuff. Only insert it as a effect and that's is it.
Patches, actual edited voices and the complete session (!) is stored within the project (total recall!)

I quote this from the announcement on Gearslutz:

VCommander, the most complete MIDI editor and librarian for Access Music's synthesizer product line Virus (Type A-C) has
finally made it to version 4, available for Windows and Mac and can run as standalone or as VST/AU plugin.
Among the known feature set of the previous version 3, we've spend some more useful functions like batch
processing, full Vocoder support, Solo-Mode and many more.

These are the features of version 4:
• Runs as VST/AU-plugin or standalone
