1: User-visible changes between 0.1beta and 0.2.0
3: Portability and Installation:
5: Support architectures with buggy long longs (alpha-dec-osf).
6: Better support for DOS and other non-Unix systems.
7: Size changes through the command line are passed to the image (and
8: saved with savesystem); the preamble specifies an interpreter and is
9: propagated by save-system.
13: Improved etags support.
14: more.fs allows output paging.
15: Added compat/ directory containing ANS implementations of Gforth features.
16: Added tiny multitasker (tasker.fs).
17: Added two alternatives for object-oriented programming: oof.fs, objects.fs.
18: Added ans-report.fs (reports which words are used from which wordset).
20: New words:
22: Changed POPEN and PCLOSE to OPEN-PIPE and CLOSE-PIPE.
23: Added FORM, ROWS, and COLS.
24: added primitives EMIT-FILE, STDOUT, STDERR.
25: Added TABLEs (case-sensitive wordlists).
26: added POSTPONE,.
27: Added the ability to combine arbitrary interpretation and compilation
28: semantics (INTERPRET/COMPILE:); state-smart words were generally
29: rewritten to use that mechanism.
31: Changes to existing words:
33: EMIT and TYPE now work through file words (and are redirectable).
34: HEADER now stores the compilation wordlist in the header and REVEAL
35: reveals into that wordlist.
36: changed behaviour of SYSTEM (no longer returns wretval, but puts it in
37: $?) added (SYSTEM) ( c_addr u -- wretval wior ).
38: ' and ['] now give an error for compile-only words.
