19    Description:
20    
21    * Complete re-organization of library names.  Many libraries have been
22    consolidated so that they share the same path anchor.  For example,
23    all MLRISC-related libraries are anchored at MLRISC, most libraries that
24    are SML/NJ-specific are under "smlnj".  Notice that names like
25    host-cmb.cm or host-compiler.cm no longer exist.  See system/README
26    for a complete description of the new naming scheme.  Quick reference:
27    
28       host-cmb.cm        -> smlnj/cmb.cm
29       host-compiler.cm   -> smlnj/compiler.cm
30       full-cm.cm         -> smlnj/cm.cm
31       <arch>-<os>.cm     -> smlnj/cmb/<arch>-<os>.cm
32       <arch>-compiler.cm -> smlnj/compiler/<arch>.cm
33    
34    * Bug fixes in CM.
35        - exceptions in user code are being passed through (i.e., reach top level)
36        - more bugs in paranoia mode fixed
37        - bug related to checking group owners fixed
38    
39    * New install.sh script that automagically fetches archive files:
40      The new file config/srcarchiveurl must contain the URL of the
41      (remote) directory that contains bin files (or other source archives).
42      If install.sh does not find the archive locally, it tries to get
43      it from that remote directory.
44      This should simplify installation further:  For machines that have
45      access to the internet, just fetch <version>-config.tgz, unpack it,
46      edit config/targets, and go (run config/install.sh).  The scipt will
47      fetch everything else that it might need all by itself.
48    
49      For CVS users, this mechanism is not relevant for source archives, but
50      it is convenient for getting new sets of binfiles.
51    
52      Archives should be tar files compressed with either gzip, compress, or
53      bzip2.  The script recognizes .tgz, .tar, tar.gz, tz, .tar.Z, and .tar.bz2.
