19    Description:
20    
21    I changed the handling of varargs in ml-nlffigen again:
22    The ellipsis ... will now simply be ignored (with an accompanying warning).
23    
24    The immediate effect is that you can actually call a varargs function
25    from ML -- but you can't actually supply any arguments beyond the ones
26    specified explicitly.  (For example, you can call printf with its format
27    string, but you cannot pass additional arguments.)
28    
29    This behavior is only marginally more useful than the one before, but
30    it has the advantage that a function or, more importantly, a function
31    type never gets dropped on the floor, thus avoiding follow-up problems with
32    other types that refer to the offending one.

39    
40    1. ckit-lib.cm now exports structure Error
41    2. ml-nlffigen reports occurences of "..." (i.e., varargs function types)
42       with a warning accompanied by a source location.  Moreover, it
43       merely skips the offending function or type and proceeds with the
44       rest of its work.u  As a result, one can safely feed C code containing
45       "..." to ml-nlffigen.
46    3. There are some internal improvements to CM, providing slightly
47       more general string substitutions in the tools subsystem.

53    Description:
54    
55    Fixed a small bug in CM's handling of parallel compilation.
56    (You could observe the bug by Control-C-interrupting an ordinary
57    CMB.make or CM.stabilize and then attaching some compile servers.
58    The result was that all of a sudden the previously interrupted
59    compilation would continue on its own.  This was because of
60    an over-optimization: CM did not bother to clean out certain queues
61    when no servers were attached "anyway", resulting in the contents
62    of these queues to grab control when new servers did get attached.)
63    
64    There is also another minor update to the CM manual.
