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/110.58/index.html">110.58</a>.

81    <li>Working version
82        <a href="dist/working/110.58/index.html">110.58</a> available.
83        Among other improvements, this version adds support for
84        Intel-based Macs as well as x86-64-based Linux machines.  Moreover,
85        it comes with <b>lexgen</b>, a brand-new drop-in replacement for
86        <tt>ml-lex</tt>.</li>
87    <li>Working version

90    <li><a href="new.html#110.51">Working version 110.51 available.</a>
91      This version adds 64-bit integer and word arithmetic to the
92      <i>Basis</i> library (structures <tt>Int64</tt> and
93      <tt>Word64</tt>).  (At the moment, the implementation is rather
94      inefficient, though.)</li>
95    <li><a href="new.html#110.50">Working version 110.50 available.</a>
96      This version corrects a problem related to <tt>struct</tt> arguments
97      and results with NLFFI on the x86 platform.  It also improves
98      back-trace support and adds a simple test coverage tool.
99      In addition, CM can now deal directly with "lazy sml" source code.</li>
100    <li><a href="new.html#110.49">Working version 110.49 available.</a>
101      Version 110.49 fixes another show-stopper bug in the x86 c-calls
102      implementation, fixes a bug in the signal masking code, and enables
103      Cygwin support.</li>
104    <li><a href="new.html#110.48">Working version 110.48 available.</a>
105      Version 110.48 fixes a show-stopper bug in the x86 c-calls
106      implementation introduced by 110.47.  It also resolves a few other
107      minor issues.</li>
108    <li><a href="new.html#110.47">Working version 110.47 available.</a>
109      The most important change is the availability of preliminary
110      implementations of the NLFFI foreign-function interface under Mac OS
111      X and Win32.</li>
112    <li><a href="new.html#110.46">Working version 110.46 available.</a>
113       We are moving closer to compliance with the Basis Library specification.
114       There are also bugfixes and other minor enhancements to the installer,
115       the Windows port, the <tt>ml-build</tt> command-line tool, and
116       the Compilation Manager.
117       </li>
118    <li><a href="new.html#110.45">Working version 110.45 available.</a>
119       This is a maintenance release which mostly fixes problems compiling
120       the runtime system code using GCC 3.3.
121       </li>
122    <li><a href="new.html#110.44">Working version 110.44 available.</a>
123       This update fixes several important bugs, improves the new
124       installer, provides support for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther), and
125       continues to bring the Basis implementation closer to the
126       specification.</li>
127    <li><a href="new.html#110.43">Working version 110.43 available.</a>
128       This is a fairly major update which brings back an operational
129       port to the Microsoft Windows platform as well as extensive
130       work on the Basis library (including support for <tt>IntInf.int</tt>).</li>
131    <li>The SML/NJ source CVS repository has been moved to SourceForge.

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