  <h2>Current Release</h2>
             
  <p> The current release of SML/NJ is <a href="NEWS/110-README.html"> <strong>
   Version 110</strong></a>, originally introduced in February 1998. Version 
 110 runs under Unix, Windows 95 or Windows NT.  (<em>The the current release 
 version number is 110.0.7, representing the 7th patch release of 110, but 
 we will refer to this version as 110 for short.</em>) </p>
           
  <p>  </p>
           
  <h3>Installation Instructions</h3>
             
  <p> To download and install SML/NJ 110, follow these  <a href="install/index.html"><strong>
   installation instructions</strong></a>.  <a name="Mirrors">          
  <h3> The Distribution Files </h3>
     </a> </p>
           
  <blockquote> NOTE: the names of the distribution files have changed in 110.0.7;
the tarball files no longer have a "110-" prefix. </blockquote>
    The files making up the Version 110 distribution are available via http 
 or ftp:

      <h3> Previous Release </h3>
     Users of the previous release, <a href="NEWS/93-README.html"> Version
 0.93</a>  (released in 1993) should migrate to Version 110 as soon as possible.
  Version 0.93 is available but is no longer supported. However, for the
time  being it is the only version that runs on Apple Macintoshes (on 68K
machines,  or PowerMacs under emulation with the aid of SoftwareFPU).   
                   
      <h3>Potential Downloading Problems (Bell Labs site)</h3>
                         
      <p> We have had reports of distribution files being corrupted when
downloaded via a web browser.  Using ftp directly may be more reliable, but
be warned that Bell Labs ftp service is incompatible with some firewalls.
 The ftp service on ftp.research.bell-labs.com uses special stripped-down
server software for security.  This implementation deviates from the RFC
standards in that the data call-back circuit does not originate from port
20 on the server host. Some firewalls count on this in their filtering rules.
If the dir (ls) command doesn't work, this is probably the reason why.  However,
most ftp accesses (including browsers) these days use the passive command
PASV, which has a better security model for a firewall.  If all else fails,
try one of the mirror sites listed above.  </p>

      <h2><a name="SOFTWARE:WORKING-VERSIONS"> Working Versions </a></h2>
    <a name="SOFTWARE:WORKING-VERSIONS">Working versions are created for
internal  development purposes and vary in reliability and stability.  Some
are robust  enough for noncritical research use, others are not.  Please
pay careful  attention to the README or NEWS file for each version before
attempting to  use it.  These working versions can be found at </a><a href="ftp://ftp.research.bell-labs.com/dist/smlnj/working">
    ftp.research.bell-labs.com</a>.                      
      <p> <a href="mailto:george@research.bell-labs.com">Lal George</a> maintains 
 a mailing list for those adventurous souls who want to receive announcements 
 of new working versions.  Contact Lal if you want to be added to (or subtracted 
 from) the list. </p>
                       
      <p> The following table gives access to README files for recent working 
  versions and the ftp directories for working versions that are currently 
 available for downloading.  The <a href="install/index.html">installation 
 instructions</a> for the release version will generally work, <em>mutatis 
 mutandis</em>, for working versions. </p>
                       
      <p> After version 110.9.1, the older "cmachine" (i.e. non-MLRISC) code
  generators have been eliminated, so a more limited range of architectures 
 will be supported until the new MLRISC code generators are implemented. 
Other major changes involving FLINT and the transition to a new runtime system
are under way, so expect some instability after 110.9.1. </p>
