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

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 !!!!
