33    Description:
34    
35    A new noweb tool has been added.  The existing system is entirely
36    unaffected by this, but some CM users have asked for renewed noweb
37    support.  Everything is documented in the CM manual.
38    
39    New (plugin) libraries:
40    
41       noweb-tool.cm
42       nw-ext.cm

51       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sig
52       smlnj/src/system/Basis/Implementation/Unsafe/object.sml
53         added toRealArray function
54       smlnj/src/compiler/MiscUtil/print/ppobj.sml
55         added check for tag Obj.RealArray to array printing case in ppObj

58       smlnj/src/compiler/Semant/types/typesutil.sml
59         fixed definition of dummyargs (used by equalTycon) so that
60         dummy args are distinct types

66    Description:
67    
68    1. CM version numbering added.  This is an implementation of Lal's
69       proposal for adding version numbers and version checking to .cm
70       files.  Lal said that his proposal was just that -- a proposal.
71       For the time being I went ahead and implemented it so that people
72       can comment on it.  Everything is completely backward-compatible
73       (except for the stable library format, i.e., new bootfiles!).
74    
75       As usual, see the CM manual for details.
76    
77    2. An alternative syntax for anchored paths has been implemented.
78       Dave has recently voiced the same concerns that I had when I did
79       this, so there should be some support.  My take is that eventually
80       I will let support for the current syntax (where anchors are
81       "implicit") fade out in favor of the new, explicit syntax.
82       In order to be backward-compatible, both old and new syntax are
83       currently supported.
84    
85       Again, see the CM manual for details.
86    
87    3. Parallel make is trying to be slightly smarter:  When the master
88       process finds a "bottleneck", i.e., when there is only one
89       compilation unit that can be compiled and everybody else is
90       waiting on it, then it will simply compile it directly instead
91       of clumsily telling one of the slaves to do it.
92    
93    4. Support for "unsharing" added.  This is necessary in order to be
94       able to have two different versions of the same library running
95       at the same time (e.g., for trying out a new MLRISC while still
96       having the old MLRISC linked into the current compiler, etc.)
97       See the CM manual.
98    
99    5. Simple "makedepend" functionality added for generating Makefile
100       dependency information.  (This is rather crude at the moment.
101       Expect some changes here in the future.)
102    
103    6. ".fun" added as a recognized suffix for ML files. Also documented
104       explicitly in the manual that the fallback behavior (unknown suffix
105       -> ML file) is not an official feature!
106    
107    7. Small changes to the pickler for stable libraries.
108    
109    8. Several internal changes to CM (for cleanup/improvement).
110    
111    
112    !!!! NEW BINFILES !!!!

117    Tag: blume-20000428-pathconfig
118    Description:
119    
120    1. I changed config/install.sh to remove duplicate entries from the
121       lib/pathconfig file at the end.  Moreover, the final version of
122       lib/pathconfig is sorted alphabetically.  The same (sorting) is done
123       in src/system/installml.
124    
125    2. The config/install.sh script now consistently uses relative
126       pathnames in lib/pathconfig whenever the anchor is in the lib
127       directory.  (So far this was true for the libraries that come
128       pre-compiled and bundled as part of the bootfiles but not for
129       libraries that are compiled by the script itself.)

136    
137    Added ".fun" as a recognized file name suffix (for ML code).

143    Description:
144    
145    1. Alpha
146    
147        PSEUDOARITH was missing in AlphaRewrite.  This causes an endless loop
148    in C--.
149    
150    2. RA
151    
152       Added a flag "ra-dump-size" to print out the size of the flowgraph
153       and the interference graph.
