Release Notes: Many bugs were fixed. zlib bindings are provided in the ZLib package. libsigsegv was upgraded for improved Mac OS X on Intel support. Improvements were made to the package and testing system, so a package can describe the classes that constitute its testsuite. Several of the modules included with GNU Smalltalk were tested for improved coverage.
Release Notes: This release removes a debugging statement that slipped in the previous release, removes text relocations from the virtual machine's installed shared library, and adds a --with-imagedir configuration option that can be used to move the image to an architecture-dependent directory.
Release Notes: Several important bugs were fixed, but these were not generally visible unless your code was affected. These bugs include improved accuracy in the conversions between Integer, Float, and Fraction objects.
Release Notes: The configure script does not lock up when the system emacs is XEmacs and lacks either the comint package or the package's source code. A garbage collection bug that typically occurred when installing GNU Smalltalk or when launching the installed image was fixed. gst-package honors the INSTALL command found by configure. gst-config does not "forget" to prefix the library directories with -L. Segmentation violations on large integer operations (on 64-bit hosts) were fixed.
Release Notes: This major release features command line parsing, regular expressions, and Unicode support in the main image rather than being extensions. Unicode support in particular was improved a lot, and classes such as UnicodeString and UnicodeCharacter are provided, and they can perform automatic translation to the user's character encoding. A lot of bugfixes and performance improvements are also included.
Release Notes: This version provides portability fixes, especially on 64-bit systems and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Bugs have been fixed in the system classes.
Release Notes: This release is a bugfix release. It especially improves the portability to MacOS systems, and includes a better algorithm to search for package files.
Release Notes: This is a maintainance release, which improves portability to the ia64 and several other platforms.
Release Notes: This release fixes a very annoying packaging problem in which "make install" failed, and "make -k install" had to be used instead. A few other mistakes were corrected, mostly for 64-bit systems.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem in #next: for sockets, and updates the build infrastructure to the latest versions of autoconf and automake, making the tarball a bit smaller and improving portability.
