21     - Changes to port to Mac OS X; Darwin.
22    
23     - In the process I found that sqrt was broken on the PPC, because the
24       fsqrt instruction is not implemented.

30    Description:
31    
32     - fixed two off-by-4 errors in the x86-specific c-calls implementation
33       (this bug prevented structure arguments containing pointers from being
34        passed correctly)
35     - changed the raw-C-call code in mlriscGen.sml in such a way that
36       structure arguments are represented as a pointer to the beginning
37       of the structure (instead of having a series of synthesized arguments,
38       one for each structure member)
39    
40     - made makeml script's verbosity level configurable via environment
41       variable (MAKEML_VERBOSITY)
42    
43     - eliminteded placeholder implementations for f32l, w16s, i16s, and f32s
44       in rawmem-x86.sml; we are now using the real thing

58    Description:
59    
60    1. All "raw memory access" primitives for the new FFI are implemented now
61       (at least on the x86).
62    2. Some further cleanup of CM's parallel make mechanism.

68    Description:
69    
70    Parallel make (using compile servers) now works again.
71    
72    To this end, CM.stabilize and CMB.make have been modified to work in
73    two passes when compile servers are attached:
74       1. Compile everything, do not perform stabilization; this pass
75          uses compile servers
76       2. Stabilize everything; this pass does not use compile servers
77    If there are no compile servers, the two passes are combined into one
78    (as before).  Splitting the passes increases the inherent parallelism
79    in the dependency graph because the entire graph including all
80    libraries is available at the same time.  This, in turn, improves
81    server utilization.  The downside is that the master process will
82    have to do some extra work after compilation is done (because for
83    technical reasons it must re-read all the binfiles during stabilization).
