Release Notes: This release added support for Linux/Alpha, Linux/ia64, Linux/x86_64, NetBSD/i386, Solaris/SPARC, and Tru64/Alpha. It also added porting and testing notes to the documentation.
Release Notes: This release added support for FreeBSD/x86, but needs testing with the different threading libraries (4.X "-pthreads", LinuxThreads, and 5.X with KSEs). There were also documentation improvements, a workaround to compile with Red Hat 9's half-finished epoll, and a fix for sigsafe_select.
Release Notes: The documentation has been improved: there's an extremely quick overview on the front page, a page with signal usage patterns and notes (from the old front page), and a separate background page. The race condition tests are now more complete and easier to run.
Release Notes: Initial version with Linux/i386 and Darwin/PPC (OS X) implementations. The race condition checker does not yet work under Darwin.
