This is a BETA release, many bugs may still remain!
Note that the beta status is only recorded in this file, if it is
found that this release is sufficiently bug free, this particular
release will be taken out of beta status.

This file will be updated with new information about this release,
please send bug AND success reports to pike@idonex.se so that they
may be recorded in this file.

Successful tests done on:
	Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6, 2.7 (sparc & x86)
	Linux Redhat 4.2
	AIX 4.2
	Digital UNIX 4.0
	FreeBSD 2.2.6
	Windows NT/95

Known problems:

  o sprintf("%#s",...); doesn't work correctly (fixed in next release)
  o certain pgcc versions (noticably pgcc-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release))
    seems to generate buggy code when compiling pike.
  o programs inherited in two steps can (in some cases) fail to find
    external identifiers
  o system() and popen() fails to send the correct environment variables
    to the child process.
  o compilation may sometimes fail with a fatal 'error in type string'
  o Loops are sometimes optimized incorrectly

Changes since 0.6.85:
  o Remote.pmod added to the Pike distribution
  o Wide string support partially implemented, not all functions
    can handle wide strings yet.
  o MySQL and ODBC is now available on NT
  o new functions: string_to_unicode(), unicode_to_string(),
    string_to_utf8(), utf8_to_string()
  o It may now be possible to recompile modules outside the source tree
    using a new script: pike-module
  o Running out of C stack now generates an error() instead of a core dump.
  o Many minor bugfixes.

  No binaries will be made available since this version has been outdated
  by Pike 0.6.108.
