7 :     WARNING
8 :    
9 :     This version is intended for compiler hackers. The
10 :     version ought to be stable, however we have not run
11 :     our full regression testing.

16 :     Summary:
17 :    
18 :     This is a bugfix release, mainly with the purpose of solving
19 :     a problem with the FLINT optimizer that was erroneously
20 :     throwing away code in some cases.
21 :    
22 :     Other changes include a minor bugfix for ml-lex, the implementation
23 :     of a "minimal" structure Compiler, and switching over to an improved
24 :     code generator on the x86 (affecting floating-point computations).
25 :

28 :     Details:
29 :    
30 :     FLINT:
31 :    
32 :     There was a problem with FLINT occasionally using the wrong
33 :     continuation for certain functions because of a faulty internal
34 :     analysis. Fixed.
35 :    
36 :     MLRISC (x86):
37 :    
38 :     An updated version of the x86-fp module has been enabled by default.
39 :     This results in significant speedups for FP-intensive code.
40 :    
41 :     Interactive system / libraries:
42 :    
43 :     A minimal version of structure Compiler is that only contains
44 :     "version" and "architecture" is available at toplevel. Thus,
45 :     legacy code that wants to test the current version number can do
46 :     so without having to load the rather heavy (and obsolete) full
47 :     structure Compiler from $smlnj/compiler/compiler.cm.
48 :    
49 :     ML-Lex:
50 :    
51 :     Bug 1581 (concerning open parentheses in constant strings) has
52 :     been fixed.
