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/110.54/index.html">110.54</a>.

85      This is mostly a bugfix release.</li>

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

134     are also in the process of being moved to SourceForge.  A mirror of
