 <h3>Patch Release 110.0.7</h3>  
 </a>  
   
 <blockquote>  
 A new minor release version  
 <a href="NEWS/110-README.html">110.0.7</a>  
 is now available.  This is the sixth patch release for  
 version 110 (110.0.4 was not released).  This patch release fixes a  
 long-standing bug in signal handling.  It also includes a number of  
 SML/NJ Library enhancements and fixes and some fixes to CM and eXene,  
 and a small number of other bug fixes.  See the  
 <a href="NEWS/110-PATCH-HISTORY"> 110-PATCH-HISTORY</a> file for  
 details. With this release, we are also making the distribution files  
 available for download via http as well as ftp.  See the  
 <a href="dist/110.0.7.html"> 110.0.7 distribution page</a>.  
 [<strong>Note:</strong> The original smlnj.exe installer for  
 Windows had incorrect CM tool paths.  This has been corrected by a new  
 smlnj.exe as of October 18, 2000.]

 <h3>Plans for the next release (Version 111)</h3>  
 </a>  
   
 <blockquote>  
   
 Meanwhile, work continues on the next release,  
 which we hope to have ready for a beta release "real soon now". The next  
 release will not contain any major language or Basis library changes, but  
 there will be major internal changes, including:  
   
 <ul>  
 <li>A new runtime system with improved management of virtual memory.</li>  
 <li>New support for foreign functions (C) based on IDL.</li>  
 <li>Conformance with the soon to be published SML Basis spec.</li>  
 <li>MLRISC code generators for all architectures.</li>  
 <li>The FLINT representation has partially replaced the old cps  
 representation in the back end.</li>  
 </ul>  
   
 In addition, there will be a couple significant language extensions:  
 lazy datatypes and lazy functions over such datatypes, functional  
 record concatenation (a "with" operation), and mutable records whose  
 fields can be updated.  
   
 <p>Most features of Version 111 are implemented in current working  
 versions.  The main missing elements are the new runtime system and a  
 MIPS code generator.</p>
