			      WARNING

  	This working version is believed to be stable, but
	we have not run our full regression-test suite.

Summary:

  In addition to a number of important bugfixes, this working version
  brings us a big step closer to a new full release: win32 port works
  again (but requires extensive testing!), IntInf.int has been put into
  the Basis (with compiler support), and many Basis interfaces have
  been updated or added in accordance with the Basis spec.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Details:
========

Basis:

  - IntInf implemented; LargeInt = IntInf; FixedInt = Int32
  - added some missing Real64 operations (in particular, Real.toLargeInt)
  - a lot of work went into bringing the Basis closer to the spec:
      missing functions added, types adjusted, *Slice modules
      written and added
  - new implementation of structure Time based on IntInf
  - major overhaul of code in structure Date; added missing functionality
  - various bug fixes
  - a lot of cleanup work

installer:

  - large parts of installer script written in ML for portability
  - new installer script for win32 (uses above ML code)
  - new installer script for *nix that uses the above ML code
  - new target "mlrisc" (MLRISC modules that don't get compiled
    into the SML/NJ compiler but are useful for other projects
    such as Moby)

runtime:

  - compiles and works under Win32 again

CM:

  - no longer gets confused by files that "change their identity"
    (e.g., by getting unlinked and recreated by a text editor)
  - parse-errors in init group (bootstrap compiler) no longer get
    swallowed

Compiler:

  - compiler support for IntInf.int
  - exported structure Typecheck from $smlnj/viscomp/core.cm
  - added casse for IF, WHILE, ANDALSO, ORELSE to Absyn; improves
    error messages and simplifies translation
  - flag added for treating non-exhaustive bindings as errors
  - improved organization of structure InlineT
  - important bug fixes

interactive system:

  - Control.Print.intinfDepth control max length of intinf constants

global:

  - source tree "cleaned" so that CMB.make goes through without any
    warning other than polyequal warnings; (not quite true for
    win32 version which still needs some more cleaning)
  - many unnecessary calls of polyequal removed
  - started using IntInf.int literals where appropriate

ml-nlffigen:

  - exports structures ST_* corresponding to incomplete types

CML:

  - compiles under Win32 again

eXene:

  - now also compiles under Win32 -- but is untested;
    (it is still an X toolkit, so you need to be able to
     connect to an X server to test it)

nowhere:

  - compiles under Win32

ckit:

  - mismatched uses of LargeInt vs. Int32 fixed
