61 : macqueen 1329 <a href="NEWS/93-README.html">
62 : dbm 2491 Version 0.93</a> (released in 1993) is still available but is
63 :     obsolete and no longer supported. It is mainly of historical interest
64 :     for code archeology.
65 : mblume 1071
66 : dbm 2484 <h2><a name="SOFTWARE:WORKING-VERSIONS"> Working Versions </a></h2>
67 :     Working versions are created for internal development purposes and
68 :     vary in reliability and stability. Most are robust enough for
69 :     noncritical research use, others are not. Please pay careful
70 :     attention to the README or NEWS file for each version before attempting
71 : macqueen 1329 to use it.
72 :    
73 :     Current and recent working versions are listed in the
74 :     <a href="dist/working/index.html">Working Versions</a> index,
75 :     which gives access to README files for recent working
76 :     versions and the ftp directories for working versions that are currently
77 :     available for downloading. The <a href="install/index.html">
78 : dbm 2484 installation instructions</a> for the release version will generally work,
79 :     <em>mutatis mutandis</em>, for working versions. </p>
80 :    
81 :     <p>
82 :     We generally announce new versions (including working versions) on
83 :     comp.lang.ml, comp.lang.functional, freshmeat.net, and our
84 :     development mailing list <img src="smlnj-list-logo.jpg" align=center>.</p>
85 : mblume 1071
86 : macqueen 1329 <p> After version 110.9.1, the older "cmachine" (i.e. non-MLRISC) code
87 :     generators were replaced by new MLRISC code
88 :     generators, except for the MIPS architecture, which is currently not
89 :     supported in the latest working version. Work on a new MIPS MLRISC
90 :     code generator is in progress.</p>
