Release Notes: This release supports UTF-8 encoding and begins to support some (future) R7RS traits. It includes full support for UTF-8 strings and symbols, support for Win32 under Cygwin, support for Mac OS X Lion, and some bugfixes.
Release Notes: The main difference with this version and the pre-1.0 ones is that it does not integrate GTK+ 1.x support. In fact, GTK+ support is now available through several ScmPkg packages. GMP-lite was completely rewritten. Functions can now have documentation strings. GNU readline support was added in REPL if the readline library can be loaded dynamically. The location of configuration files can now be changed. An interactive help system was added. Newly implemented SRFIs include 74, 96, 98, and 100. New primitives include port?, help, make-directories, and ensure-directories-exist. Bugs were fixed.
