One of these days I will sit down and improve the web page.

Tiny-Fu ...
-  uses a Scheme interpreter which is still being developed. The Scheme 
interpreter used in Script-Fu is very old and is no longer being maintained.
- uses a scheme interpreter used that implements as large a subset of R5RS 
(the standard for Scheme) as was possible without it getting very large and 
- supports UTF-8 coded strings. This allows the creation of scripts which use 
characters and text in human languages which contain accented characters and 
other characters that can not be represented using standard ASCII.
- includes support for additional time, date, and file I/O functions
- includes regex pattern matching routines.
- supports use of run-time loadable extensions.

Note that the run-time loadable extensions feature is currently disabled. I 
plan to re-enable it in relation to work being done for the 2.0 version of 

Tiny-Fu will also soon have support for radio buttons via an SF-RADIO 
parameter in the register block. Support for an SF-RADIO type is mostly done. 
I am just working on getting the buttons to display properly in a dialog box.

I think that covers the advantages of Tiny-Fu over Script-Fu unless I forgot
