                                WARNING

        This working version is believed to be stable, but
        we have not run our full regression-test suite.

Summary:

   Important bugfixes and minor feature enhancements.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Runtime system:
---------------

- Fixed a GC bug that occasionally caused data corruption.
- Improved the heap sizing policy.
- Added a runtime flag that lets the user turn of aggressive
  heap trimming.  This can improve performance of programs with
  very large heaps at the expense of causing a (very slow) space
  leak.
- Added support for Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger").

Compiler:
---------

- Added workaround for overloading bug in type checker.

Basis:
------

- Word64.fromString should now behave correctly.  (Notice that Word64
  is not an official feature.  It's current implementation is extremely
  inefficient.  We provided it just for the benefit of NLFFI so that
  C functions that pass long long values can be used.)
- Fixed a bug in the implementation of div and mod for IntInf.
  This also fixes a corresponding problem with Word64 and Int64.

Libraries:
----------

- Added a "join" combinator to ParserComb in smlnj-lib.cm.
- Fixed serious bug in new implementation of structure Atom in CML.
- Added singleton function to MONO_PRIORITYQ interface.
- Fixed bug in GetOpt.getOpt.
- Added Atom.same and Atom.lexCompare.

Interactive system:
-------------------

- Added mechanism for re-creating a heap file for the interactive system
  after configuration variables have been changed.

Installer:
----------

- Added support scripts for Mac OS X PackageMaker and modified
  config/install.sh so that it supports re-dumping a heap image
  after customization.

Code generator:
---------------

- Added a gc protocol checking phase.  This phase is enabled with 
  the flag "check-gc".  "debug-check-gc" turns on the verbose mode.
