The v5.0 comes bundled with support for multi-asset trading, ERC-1155/ERC20 minting, and so much more, unlocking a wide range of use cases, from trading a combination of different NFTs in a single transaction to atomically paying fees to multiple parties, and even including both these possibilities in one transaction.
