>1) Is the RegEx functionality working in 3.1.14, or was this note in the

Yes, it has been working in Vassal for some time.

>2) Does this implementation of RegEx follow the POSIX standard, similar

It uses the java.util.regex package. Whatever it supplies, we support.

>3) Has anyone tried using this for Trigger / Conditional testing?  Did
>it work OK, or are there any strange exceptions worth noting?

I have used it to match simple expressions and had no problems at all.
