69    Although we have not "blessed" it as a full release,
70    we <i>strongly</i> recommend using one of our recent
71    <a href="dist/working/index.html">working</a> versions.
72    Currently, the most recent such version
73    is <a href="dist/working/110.55/index.html">110.55</a>.

84    <li><a href="new.html#110.51">Working version 110.51 available.</a>
85      This version adds 64-bit integer and word arithmetic to the
86      <i>Basis</i> library (structures <tt>Int64</tt> and
87      <tt>Word64</tt>).  (At the moment, the implementation is rather
88      inefficient, though.)</li>
89    <li><a href="new.html#110.50">Working version 110.50 available.</a>
90      This version corrects a problem related to <tt>struct</tt> arguments
91      and results with NLFFI on the x86 platform.  It also improves
92      back-trace support and adds a simple test coverage tool.
93      In addition, CM can now deal directly with "lazy sml" source code.</li>
94    <li><a href="new.html#110.49">Working version 110.49 available.</a>
95      Version 110.49 fixes another show-stopper bug in the x86 c-calls
96      implementation, fixes a bug in the signal masking code, and enables
97      Cygwin support.</li>
98    <li><a href="new.html#110.48">Working version 110.48 available.</a>
99      Version 110.48 fixes a show-stopper bug in the x86 c-calls
100      implementation introduced by 110.47.  It also resolves a few other
101      minor issues.</li>
102    <li><a href="new.html#110.47">Working version 110.47 available.</a>
103      The most important change is the availability of preliminary
104      implementations of the NLFFI foreign-function interface under Mac OS
105      X and Win32.</li>
106    <li><a href="new.html#110.46">Working version 110.46 available.</a>
107       We are moving closer to compliance with the Basis Library specification.
108       There are also bugfixes and other minor enhancements to the installer,
109       the Windows port, the <tt>ml-build</tt> command-line tool, and
110       the Compilation Manager.
111       </li>
112    <li><a href="new.html#110.45">Working version 110.45 available.</a>
113       This is a maintenance release which mostly fixes problems compiling

115       </li>
116    <li><a href="new.html#110.44">Working version 110.44 available.</a>
117       This update fixes several important bugs, improves the new
118       installer, provides support for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther), and
119       continues to bring the Basis implementation closer to the
120       specification.</li>
121    <li><a href="new.html#110.43">Working version 110.43 available.</a>
122       This is a fairly major update which brings back an operational
123       port to the Microsoft Windows platform as well as extensive
124       work on the Basis library (including support for <tt>IntInf.int</tt>).</li>

     The biggest highlight of this version is that it fixes a long-standing  
     problem with the garbage collector that would lead to constant, slow,
