Release Notes: This release marks the end of feature development of a version that bootstraps using mindy. Versions 2.5 and onwards will support other means of bootstrap, probably using cross-platform compilation of generated C files. This release is considered to be of production stability, even though it still lacks certain features.
Release Notes: This release provides improved platform support, especially workarounds for various gcc 3.x problems. Also new is precise floating point reading and writing, allowing for reliable representation of floats in text form.
Release Notes: Further improvements were made to Common Dylan compliance, exception reporting, the Melange tool, introspection, and runtime error checking. There are workarounds for problems encountered with some versions of gcc 3.x. Support for the HP/UX PA-RISC platform has been revived, and an alpha version of support for the Mac OS X Cocoa framework is now included. Also, the testworks unit test library is provided. There's a technology demonstration of a Dylan interactor (also known as a REPL to the Lisp folks).
Release Notes: This is probably the last release of the unstable development tree, and the basis for version 2.4, which shall be a high-quality stable release. Besides the obvious ton of bugfixes, 2.3.9 provides each-subclass slots, a rudimentary network library, greatly improved common-dylan compliance, better performance, increased debuggability, updated documentation, etc. This version comes with the quality assurance library and tests kindly provided by Functional Objects.
Release Notes: This release fixes a lot of the bugs that were still open or have been introduced by the addition of new features. This is still not what one would consider a stable release in classical terms (many desired features are still missing), but it is the version with the fewest bugs ever. Supported platforms include Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, MacOS X and Win32. Supported architectures are x86, PowerPC, SPARC, and S/390.
Release Notes: Support for the DUIM user interface toolkit (which uses GTK+ as the backend), tons of bugfixes, support for new architectures (MacOS X, Linux/S390), better standards compliance (unhygienic macro references, class slots), and increased performance.
Release Notes: The compiler now generates smaller and faster code. More of the features in the DRM are supported (class slots, limited collections), more platforms are supported, and a lot of bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release features integration of a Win32 version based on Cygnus. Also, the MacOS X port is now fully working, and includes a Carbon interface library with examples (even GUI). Of course, there are the usual bug fixes.
Release Notes: MacOS support for both mindy and d2c, endless bugfixes, and a shift towards common-dylan compliance.
Release Notes: The main new feature of this version is support for shared libraries on selected platforms. Also, as usual lots of bugs have been fixed, Macintosh support has been added, more platforms are supported, we have trampoline code for PowerPC, and more.
