21    This update contains:
22    
23    1. A small change to CM's handling of stable libraries:
24       CM now maintains one "global" modmap that is used for all stable
25       libraries.  The use of such a global modmap maximizes sharing and
26       minimizes the need for re-traversing parts of environments during
27       modmap construction.  (However, this has minor impact since modmap
28       construction seems to account for just one percent or less of total
29       compile time.)
30    
31    2. I added a "genmap" phase to the statistics.  This is where I got the
32       "one percent" number (see above).
33    
34    3. CM's new tool parameter mechanism just became _even_ better. :)
35       - The parser understands named parameters and recursive options.
36       - The "make" and "shell" tools use these new features.
37         (This makes it a lot easier to cascade these tools.)
38       - There is a small syntax change: named parameters use a
39    
40           <name> : ( <option> ... )            or
41           <name> : <string>
42    
43         syntax.  Previously, named parameters were implemented in an
44         ad-hoc fashion by each tool individually (by parsing strings)
45         and had the form
46    
47           <name>=<string>
48    
49       See the CM manual for a full description of these issues.
