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: This is mainly a maintenance version. Changes include documentation updates, modifications to support ScmPkg on MacPorts, fixes for incompatibilities in FFI introduced in 1.00, better x86_64 support, and 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.
Release Notes: The C/invoke FFI library has been replaced by libffi. Now Gtk2 ScmPkg packages work on Mac OS. The option --build-sync-file has been added to ease personal ScmPkg repository maintenance. There are some bugfixes.
Release Notes: Support for recent versions of SLIB was fixed. The stklos-pkg command was improved. Several mutexes bugs were fixed. Minor improvements were made to the FFI. PCRE was updated to version 7.4. SRFIs were implemented (SRFI-45, SRFI-59, SRFI-88, SRFI-89). Bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release introduces a simple FFI (foreign function interface). Support for FreeBSD was improved. A bug which was triggered when using the -j option of make during bootstrap was fixed. Several problems with ScmPkg packages installation were fixed.
Release Notes: This is a major version introducing support for the ScmPkg source packaging system. It includes numerous enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds the --debug option to the interpreter. There are better error messages when in debug mode, and more correct line numbers. The LALR parser has been updated to the latest version. There are better error messages for POSIX functions. Internal macro definitions are allowed now. There are new parameters for controlling compilation.
Release Notes: The previous release had a bug that prevented it from compiling on some architectures/systems.
Release Notes: This is a version with important changes to support multi-threading. This version provides two kinds of threads: synchronous LURC threads and asynchronous POSIX threads (a.k.a. pthreads). Other changes include better error messages, the ability to compile byte-codes to a C file, new optimizations, more customizable REPL, some new primitives, and an implementation of SRFI-18 (Multithreading support). Bugs were fixed.
