32 :     == Summary
33 :    
34 :     This is a patch release that includes a few bug fixes and
35 :     adds support for *macOS 12* (Monterey).
36 :    
37 :     == Details
38 :    
39 :     === SML/NJ Library
40 :    
41 :     Several improvements to the *JSON* library:
42 :     --
43 :     * Added convenience function `int` to the `JSON_STREAM_OUTPUT` interface.
44 :    
45 :     * Refactored the output modules in the *JSON* library. These changes should
46 :     not affect current clients of the library, but allow the addition of
47 :     printing *JSON* to a `CharBuffer.buf`.
48 :    
49 :     * Bug fix to `JSONUtil` module; the `FIND` path arc was not getting
50 :     handled for the update functions (_i.e._, `replace`, `insert`, and `append`).
51 :     --
52 :    
53 :     === 32-bit macOS issues
54 :    
55 :     While the {dist-dir}smlnj-x86-{version}.pkg[x86 installer]
56 :     for {version} works on **macOs** 10.14 Mojave, building from source
57 :     requires some extra steps because the version of **Xcode**
58 :     distributed for Mojave does not include a 32-bit SDK.
59 :    
60 :     Another issue that you may encounter
61 :     when building on **macOs** 10.14 Mojave is an error message for a shell
62 :     script of the form
63 :    
64 :     .....
65 :     /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Operation not permitted
66 :     .....
67 :    
68 :     This error arises because the `com.apple.quarantine` attribute is set on the
69 :     shell script. To fix the problem, remove the attribute using the command
70 :    
71 :     [source,shell]
72 :     -----
73 :     xattr -d com.apple.quarantine shell-script
74 :     -----
75 :     and resume the build.
76 :
