19    
20    A new noweb tool has been added.  The existing system is entirely
21    unaffected by this, but some CM users have asked for renewed noweb
22    support.  Everything is documented in the CM manual.
23    
24    New (plugin) libraries:
25    
26       noweb-tool.cm
27       nw-ext.cm

36       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sig
37       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sml
38         added toRealArray function
39       smlnj/src/compiler/MiscUtil/print/ppobj.sml
40         added check for tag Obj.RealArray to array printing case in ppObj
41    
42    2. Fix for bug 1510
43       smlnj/src/compiler/Semant/types/typesutil.sml
44         fixed definition of dummyargs (used by equalTycon) so that
45         dummy args are distinct types

51    Description:
52    
53    1. CM version numbering added.  This is an implementation of Lal's
54       proposal for adding version numbers and version checking to .cm
55       files.  Lal said that his proposal was just that -- a proposal.
56       For the time being I went ahead and implemented it so that people
57       can comment on it.  Everything is completely backward-compatible
58       (except for the stable library format, i.e., new bootfiles!).
59    
60       As usual, see the CM manual for details.
61    
62    2. An alternative syntax for anchored paths has been implemented.
63       Dave has recently voiced the same concerns that I had when I did
64       this, so there should be some support.  My take is that eventually
65       I will let support for the current syntax (where anchors are
66       "implicit") fade out in favor of the new, explicit syntax.
67       In order to be backward-compatible, both old and new syntax are
68       currently supported.
69    
70       Again, see the CM manual for details.
71    
72    3. Parallel make is trying to be slightly smarter:  When the master
73       process finds a "bottleneck", i.e., when there is only one
74       compilation unit that can be compiled and everybody else is
75       waiting on it, then it will simply compile it directly instead
76       of clumsily telling one of the slaves to do it.
77    
78    4. Support for "unsharing" added.  This is necessary in order to be
79       able to have two different versions of the same library running
80       at the same time (e.g., for trying out a new MLRISC while still
81       having the old MLRISC linked into the current compiler, etc.)
82       See the CM manual.
83    
84    5. Simple "makedepend" functionality added for generating Makefile
85       dependency information.  (This is rather crude at the moment.
86       Expect some changes here in the future.)
87    
88    6. ".fun" added as a recognized suffix for ML files. Also documented
89       explicitly in the manual that the fallback behavior (unknown suffix
90       -> ML file) is not an official feature!
91    
92    7. Small changes to the pickler for stable libraries.
93    
94    8. Several internal changes to CM (for cleanup/improvement).
95    
96    
97    !!!! NEW BINFILES !!!!
