Byteman 1.4.1 has been released and is now available at the project 
download page[1] or from the JBoss maven repository[2].
The release contains patches for a few important bugs and omissions

     * a regression introduced into AT LINE triggers has been corrected
     * assignment of arrays and creation of arrays has been implemented

It also provides a couple of new features:

     * trigger points can now include local or parameter variable 
accesses e.g. the rule location can now be something like AT READ 
$loopvar or AFTER WRITE $1 where $loopvar is a local variable or $1 is 
the first method parameter
     * AFTER INVOKE rules can now read and reassign  $!, the value 
returned by the method invocation which triggered rule processing

Full details provided in the release notes[3] and  programmer's guide[4].
