28      1. Alpha
29    
30          Slight cleanup.  Removed the instruction SGNXL
31    
32      2. X86
33    
34          Added the following instructions to the instruction set:
35    
36            ROLx, RORx,
37            BTx, BTSx, BTLx, BTRx,
38            XCHGx, and variants with the LOCK prefix
39    
40      3. Register Allocation
41    
42          The module ra-rewrite-with-renaming has been improved.
43    
44      These have no effect on SML/NJ.

50    Description:
51    
52    1. I added an alternative to "-rebuild" to "makeml".  The difference is
53       that prior to calling CMB.make' the CM-variable "LIGHT" will be
54       defined.  In effect, the command will not build any cross-compiler
55       backends and therefore finish more quickly.
56    
57       The "fixpt" script also takes a "-light" switch to be able to use
58       this new facility while compiling for a fixpoint.
59    
60    2. I replaced all mentions of anchored paths in group owner specifications
61       with simple relative paths (usually starting with "..").
62       The rationale is that a library's internal workings should not be
63       compromised by the lack of some anchor.  (An anchor is necessary
64       for someone who wants to refer to the library by an anchored path,
65       but it should not be necessary to build the same library in the first
66       place.)
67    
68    3. I changed the way CM's tool mechanism determines the shell command
69       string used for things like ml-yacc etc. so that it does not break
70       when CM.Control.implicit_anchors is turned off.

76    Description:
77    
78    Fixed a bug in config/_ml-build that prevented ml-yacc and ml-lex from
79    getting installed properly (by config/install.sh).

85    Description:
86    
87    !!! NEW BOOT FILES !!!
88    
89    This change is in preparation of fading out support for "implicitly
90    anchored path names".  I went through all sources and used the
91    explicit (and relatively new) $-notation.  See system/README and the
92    CM manual for more info on this.
93    
94    I also modified the anchoring scheme for some things such as "smlnj",
95    "MLRISC", "cm", etc. to take advantage of the fact that explicit
96    anchors are more expressive: anchor name and first arc do not have to
97    coincide.  This entails the following user-visible change:
98    
99    You have to write $smlnj/foo/bar instead of smlnj/foo/bar.  In
100    particular, when you fire up sml with a command-line argument, say,
101    e.g.:
102    
103       sml '$smlnj/cmb.cm'
104    
105    At the ML toplevel prompt:
106    
107       CM.autoload "$smlnj/cmb.cm";
108    
109    There is also a new controller in CM.Control that can be used to turn
110    off all remaining support for implicit anchors by saying:
111    
112        CM.autoload "$smlnj/
113        #set CM.Control.implicit_anchors false;
114    
115    This causes CM to reject implicitly anchored paths.  This is (for the
116    time being) less permissive than the "final" version where there will
117    be no more such implicit anchors and relative paths will be just that:
118    relative.
119    
120    The next step (version after next version?) will be to make the
121    default for CM.Control.implicit_anchors false.  After the dust has
122    settled, I can then produce the "final" version of this...
123    
124    Note: Since bootstrapping is a bit tricky, I provided new boot files.
