                                WARNING

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

<h2>Summary:</h2>

    Improvements to language processing tools and installation procedure.
    Other minor bugfixes and enhancements.

<hr>

<h2>Details:</h2>

<dl>
  <dt>installer:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>Installer now handles the new <tt>ml-lpt-lib.cm</tt>.</li>
      <li>There is now a new <em>library installer</em> that can be
      used by shell scripts.</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>

  <dt>SML/NJ library:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>UTF8 structure and signature (from Moby) added.</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>

  <dt>CML:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>UTF8 structure and signature exported.</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>

  <dt>runtime:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>Added functionality to "shift" command line arguments
      (like <tt>/bin/sh</tt>'s <b>shift</b> command).</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>

  <dt>CM:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>During startup, while processing command-line arguments,
      CM uses the new <em>shift</em> functionality (see above) to trim
      down the argument list.<br>
      This way one can easily write ML code that (when executed via
      the command line) takes over control and processes all
      remaining arguments.<br>
      This functionality is utilized by the new library installer.</li>

      <li>CM plugins for tools (e.g., <tt>ml-burg</tt>,
      <tt>ml-ulex</tt>, <tt>ml-antlr</tt>) now live
      within their respective source trees and are installed
      by the library installer.</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>

  <dt>language processing tools:</dt>
  <dd>
    <ul>
      <li>manual is up-to-date with the code</li>
      <li>many minor improvements</li>
      <li>a few minor bugfixes</li>
      <li>added support for stream created from several kinds of sources</li>
    </ul>
  </dd>
