18    Description:
20    1. CM version numbering added.  This is an implementation of Lal's
21       proposal for adding version numbers and version checking to .cm
22       files.  Lal said that his proposal was just that -- a proposal.
23       For the time being I went ahead and implemented it so that people
24       can comment on it.  Everything is completely backward-compatible
25       (except for the stable library format, i.e., new bootfiles!).
27       As usual, see the CM manual for details.
29    2. An alternative syntax for anchored paths has been implemented.
30       Dave has recently voiced the same concerns that I had when I did
31       this, so there should be some support.  My take is that eventually
32       I will let support for the current syntax (where anchors are
33       "implicit") fade out in favor of the new, explicit syntax.
34       In order to be backward-compatible, both old and new syntax are
35       currently supported.
37       Again, see the CM manual for details.
39    3. Parallel make is trying to be slightly smarter:  When the master
40       process finds a "bottleneck", i.e., when there is only one
41       compilation unit that can be compiled and everybody else is
42       waiting on it, then it will simply compile it directly instead
43       of clumsily telling one of the slaves to do it.
45    4. Support for "unsharing" added.  This is necessary in order to be
46       able to have two different versions of the same library running
47       at the same time (e.g., for trying out a new MLRISC while still
48       having the old MLRISC linked into the current compiler, etc.)
49       See the CM manual.
51    5. Simple "makedepend" functionality added for generating Makefile
52       dependency information.  (This is rather crude at the moment.
53       Expect some changes here in the future.)
55    6. ".fun" added as a recognized suffix for ML files. Also documented
56       explicitly in the manual that the fallback behavior (unknown suffix
57       -> ML file) is not an official feature!
59    7. Small changes to the pickler for stable libraries.
61    8. Several internal changes to CM (for cleanup/improvement).
64    !!!! NEW BINFILES !!!!
