19    None of these things should affect normal SML/NJ operations
20    
21    1. Peephole improvements provided by Fermin (c--)
22    2. New annotation DEFUSE for adding extra dependence (moby)
23    3. New X86 LOCK instructions (moby)
24    4. New machine description language for reservation tables (scheduling)
25    5. Fixes to various optimization/analysis modules (branch chaining, dominator
26       trees etc.)
27    6. I've changed the CM files so that they can work with versions
28       110.0.6, 110.25 and 110.28

35    
36    - Removed all(?) remaining RCS Log entries from sources.
37    
38    - Fixed bug in ml-yacc and ml-lex sources (use explicit anchors for
39      anchored paths).

44    Tag: blume-20000607-no-implicit-anchors
45    Description:
46    
47    1. This update changes the default setting for
48    CM.Control.implicit_anchors from true to false.  This means that
49    implicit anchors are no longer permitted by default.  I also tried to
50    make sure that nothing else still relies on implicit anchors.
51    (This is the next step on the schedule towards a CM that does not even
52    have the notion of implicit anchors anymore.)
53    
54    2. More CM manual updates.
55    
56    3. I managed to track down and fix the pickling bug I mentioned last
57    time.  Because of the previously existing workaround, this entails no
58    immediate practical changes.

64    Description:
65    
66    !!!! NEW BOOT FILES !!!!
67    
68    * The main purpose of this update is to make library pickles lazier in
69    order to reduce the initial space penalty for autoloading a library.
70    As a result, it is now possible to have $smlnj/compiler.cm
71    pre-registered.  This should take care of the many complaints or
72    inquiries about missing structure Compiler.  This required changes to
73    CM's internal data structures and small tweaks to some algorithms.
74    
75    As a neat additional effect, it is no longer necessary (for the sake
76    of lean heap image files) to distinguish between a "minimal" CM and a
77    "full" CM.  Now, there is only one CM (i.e., the "full" version:
78    $smlnj/cm.cm aka $smlnj/cm/full.cm), and it is always available at the
79    interactive top level. ($smlnj/cm/minimal.cm is gone.)
80    
81    To make the life of compiler-hackers easier, "makeml" now also
82    pre-registers $smlnj/cmb.cm (aka $smlnj/cmb/current.cm).  In other
83    words, after you bootstrap a new sml for the first time, you will not
84    have to autoload $smlnj/cmb.cm again afterwards.  (The first time
85    around you will still have to do it, though.)
86    
87    * A second change consists of major updates to the CM manual.  There
88    are now several appendices with summary information and also a full
89    specification of the CM description file syntax.
90    
91    * In directory src/system I added the script "allcross".  This script
92    invokes sml and cross-compiles the compiler for all supported
93    architectures.  (Useful when providing a new set of boot files.)
94    
95    * There seems to be a latent bug in my "lazy pickles" mechanism.  I
96    added a small tweak to pickle-util.sml to work around this problem,
97    but it is not a proper fix yet.  I will investigate further.  (The
98    effect of the bug was an inflation of library pickle size.)
99    
100    * Version number increased to 110.28.1 (to avoid compatibility problems).
