ECL 9.10.1 released

Among other novelties, it includes support for OS X 10.6 or Snow Leopard, full support for the latest versions of Solaris, weak pointers, and a new model for handling signals.

However, until we transition to the upcoming release of the Boehm-Weiser library, the
following problems persist:

  • NetBSD and Open only work in single-threaded mode because 1) the version of the garbage collector shipped with it does not support GC_register_my_thread and 2) the version of the garbage collector shipped with ECL fails to build (it gets locked when looking for a working fork())

  • The mingw32 port only builds in multithreaded mode when using the unstable release of the garbage collector (v7.2)

As usual, refer to for downloading, reading the manual, or browsing unstable versions.
