Linux Redhat 5.2
Digital UNIX 4.0
Windows NT/95 (will be available shortly)
o Do not compile with -fomit-frame-pointer, this causes problems with
several versions of gcc, egcs and pgcc. To the best of our knowledge,
this is a compiler bug.
o gcc 2.8.1 on sparc machines sometimes generate faulty code for
the charset module
o Process handling may not work 100% on all platforms.
o destroy() may do unpredictable things when exit() is called
Changes since 0.6.110:
o Process handling has been changed to use a wait thread on Solaris
and AIX. This should solve any 'pike lost track of a child' problems.
o Many, many, many minor bugfixes.
o glibc2 threads does no longer hang testsuite
Binaries will be made available if this release is deemed stable enough.
