<H2>Standard ML of New Jersey version 0.93</h2>
<h3>February, 1993</h3>

Standard ML of New Jersey, version 0.93, is now available for FTP.
This is the first general public release since version 0.75, and there
are a number of substantial improvements:
<li> there are almost no remaining bugs,
<li> less space is taken up for both compilation and execution,
<li> several new machines are supported,
<li> extensive documentation is provided, and 
<li> several experimental language extensions are provided.

The distribution also contains:
<li> an extensive library - The Standard ML of New Jersey Library,
          together with detailed documentation.
<li> CML - Concurrent ML
<li> eXene - an elegant interface to X11 (based on CML)
<li> SourceGroup - a separate compilation and "make" facility

SML/NJ 0.93 has been tested on these machine/OS combinations:
<li> Sun     M680x0/SunOS        (x >= 2)
<li> HP      M680x0/HPUX[6,7,8]  **
<li> NeXT    M68040/NeXTStep[2.0,3.0]
<li> Apple   M680x0/AUX[3.0]
<li> Apple   M680x0/MacOS
<li> Sun     SPARCstation/SunOS[4.1.1, 4.1.3]

<li> DEC     MIPS/ULTRIX[UWS4.2]
<li> DEC Mach
<li> MIPS    MIPS/RiscOS[4.51,4.52]
<li> SGI     MIPS/IRIX[4.0.x]
<li> Sony    MIPS/Sony-News

<li> IBM     RS6000/AIX[3.2]

<li> Sequent I386/DYNIX3
<li> Intel   I[386,486]/BSD/MACH

<li> HP      HPPA/HPUX[8.0]     (beta release) ++
**  marks configurations that have not been tested recently.
++  The HPPA port is known to have a serious bug when compiling
     large programs, but should be adequate for classroom use.
