70    <li><a href="new.html#110.47">Working version 110.47 available.</a>
71      The most important change is the availability of preliminary
72      implementations of the NLFFI foreign-function interface under Mac OS
73      X and Win32.</li>
74    <li><a href="new.html#110.46">Working version 110.46 available.</a>
75       We are moving closer to compliance with the Basis Library specification.
76       There are also bugfixes and other minor enhancements to the installer,
77       the Windows port, the <tt>ml-build</tt> command-line tool, and
78       the Compilation Manager.
79       </li>
80    <li><a href="new.html#110.45">Working version 110.45 available.</a>
81       This is a maintenance release which mostly fixes problems compiling
82       the runtime system code using GCC 3.3.
83       </li>
84    <li><a href="new.html#110.44">Working version 110.44 available.</a>
85       This update fixes several important bugs, improves the new
86       installer, provides support for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther), and
87       continues to bring the Basis implementation closer to the
88       specification.</li>
89    <li><a href="new.html#110.43">Working version 110.43 available.</a>
90       This is a fairly major update which brings back an operational
91       port to the Microsoft Windows platform as well as extensive
92       work on the Basis library (including support for <tt>IntInf.int</tt>).</li>
93    <li>The SML/NJ source CVS repository has been moved to SourceForge.
94      The
95     <a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/smlnj">SML/NJ SourceForge
96                project page</a>
97     has a link to information about CVS access.  The distribution files
98     are also in the process of being moved to SourceForge.  A mirror of
99     the www.smlnj.org is available at the
100     <a href="http://smlnj.cs.uchicago.edu">
101     University of Chicago</a>. The Bell Labs SML/NJ web site is now obsolete and
102     will be replaced with an indirection to www.smlnj.org. [March 10, 2003]</li>
103    <li>We have switched over to a new mailing list hosted by
104        <a href="http://sourceforge.net/">SourceForge</a>.  The name of
105        the new list is <img src="smlnj-list-logo.jpg" align=center>.
106        (To avoid receiving
107        to much spam we do not show the name of the mailing list in clear text
108        and render it as a JPG image instead.  If spammers start using fancy
109        OCR, we give up.)</li>
