18    Description:
19    
20      Various bug fixes and new features for C--, Moby and MLRISC optimizations.
21    None of these affect SML/NJ.
22    
23    1. Register Allocation
24    
25        a. A new ra spilling module (ra/ra-spill-with-renaming) is implemented.
26           This module tries to remove local (i.e. basic block level) redundancies
27           during spilling.
28    
29        b. A new framework for performing region based register allocation.
30           Not yet entirely functional.
31    
32    2. X86
33    
34       a. DefUse for POP was missing the stack pointer [found by Lal]
35       b. Reload for CALL was incorrect in X86Spill [found by John]
36       c. Various fixes in X86Spill so that it can be used correctly for
37          the new spilling module.
38    
39    3. SSA/IR
40    
41       a. New module ir/dj-dataflow.sml implements elimination based
42          data flow analysis.
43    
44    4. MLRiscGen
45    
46       a. Fix for gc type annotation
47    
48    5. MDGen
49    
50       Various fixes for machine description -> ml code translation.  For ssa
51       only.

57    Description:
58    
59      Fermin has found a few assembly problems with constant expressions
60      generated in LabelExp.  Mostly, the problems involve extra parentheses,
61      which choke on dumb assemblers.  This is his fix.

70    
71    2. Updated config/version to 110.28
72    
73    3. Updated config/srcarchiveurl
74    
75    3. New boot files!

81    Tag: blume-20000501-noweb
82    Description:
83    
84    A new noweb tool has been added.  The existing system is entirely
85    unaffected by this, but some CM users have asked for renewed noweb
86    support.  Everything is documented in the CM manual.
87    
88    New (plugin) libraries:
89    
90       noweb-tool.cm
91       nw-ext.cm

97    Description:
98    
99    1. Fix for bug 1498
100       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sig
101       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sml
102         added toRealArray function
103       smlnj/src/compiler/MiscUtil/print/ppobj.sml
104         added check for tag Obj.RealArray to array printing case in ppObj
105    
106    2. Fix for bug 1510
107       smlnj/src/compiler/Semant/types/typesutil.sml
108         fixed definition of dummyargs (used by equalTycon) so that
109         dummy args are distinct types

115    Description:
116    
117    1. CM version numbering added.  This is an implementation of Lal's
118       proposal for adding version numbers and version checking to .cm
119       files.  Lal said that his proposal was just that -- a proposal.
120       For the time being I went ahead and implemented it so that people
121       can comment on it.  Everything is completely backward-compatible
122       (except for the stable library format, i.e., new bootfiles!).
123    
124       As usual, see the CM manual for details.
125    
126    2. An alternative syntax for anchored paths has been implemented.
127       Dave has recently voiced the same concerns that I had when I did
128       this, so there should be some support.  My take is that eventually
129       I will let support for the current syntax (where anchors are
130       "implicit") fade out in favor of the new, explicit syntax.
131       In order to be backward-compatible, both old and new syntax are
132       currently supported.
133    
134       Again, see the CM manual for details.
135    
136    3. Parallel make is trying to be slightly smarter:  When the master
137       process finds a "bottleneck", i.e., when there is only one
138       compilation unit that can be compiled and everybody else is
139       waiting on it, then it will simply compile it directly instead
140       of clumsily telling one of the slaves to do it.
141    
142    4. Support for "unsharing" added.  This is necessary in order to be
143       able to have two different versions of the same library running
144       at the same time (e.g., for trying out a new MLRISC while still
145       having the old MLRISC linked into the current compiler, etc.)
146       See the CM manual.
147    
148    5. Simple "makedepend" functionality added for generating Makefile
149       dependency information.  (This is rather crude at the moment.
150       Expect some changes here in the future.)
151    
152    6. ".fun" added as a recognized suffix for ML files. Also documented
153       explicitly in the manual that the fallback behavior (unknown suffix
154       -> ML file) is not an official feature!
155    
156    7. Small changes to the pickler for stable libraries.
157    
158    8. Several internal changes to CM (for cleanup/improvement).
159    
160    
161    !!!! NEW BINFILES !!!!
