30 :     <h3>Summary:</h3>
31 :    
32 :     <ul>
33 :     <li>This is a bugfix release, mainly with the purpose of solving a problem
34 :     with the FLINT optimizer that was erroneously throwing away code in some
35 :     cases.</li>
36 :     <li>Other changes include a minor bugfix for ml-lex, the implementation
37 :     of a "minimal" structure Compiler, and switching over to an improved code
38 :     generator on the x86 (affecting floating-point computations).<br>
39 :     </li>
40 :    
41 :     </ul>
42 :

44 :     <hr width="100%" size="2" align="Left">
45 :     <h4>FLINT: </h4>
46 :    
47 :     <ul>
48 :     <li>There was a problem with FLINT occasionally using the wrong continuation
49 :     for certain functions because of a faulty internal analysis.&nbsp; Fixed.<br>
50 :     </li>
51 :     </ul>
52 :     <h4>MLRISC (x86): </h4>
53 :    
54 :     <ul>
55 :     <li>An updated version of the x86-fp module has been enabled by default.
56 :     This results in significant speedups for FP-intensive code.</li>
57 :    
58 :     </ul>
59 :    
60 :     <h4>Interactive system / libraries:</h4>
61 :    
62 :     <ul>
63 :     <li>A minimal version of structure Compiler is that only contains "version"
64 :     and "architecture" is available at toplevel.&nbsp; Thus, legacy code that
65 :     wants to test the current version number can do so without having to load
66 :     the rather heavy (and obsolete) full structure Compiler from $smlnj/compiler/compiler.cm.<br>
67 :     </li>
68 :     </ul>
69 :     <h4>ML-Lex:</h4>
70 :    
71 :     <ul>
72 :     <li>Bug 1581 (concerning open parentheses in constant strings) has been
73 :     fixed.</li>
74 :     </ul>
