1CHICKEN branches currently in use                               -*- Outline -*-
2=================================
3
4
5* chicken-3
6
7  Maintenance branch for release 3.4.0. This branch is only for fixing
8  critical bugs, main development takes place in trunk.
9
10* prerelease
11
12  Before a release, the current trunk is merged into this branch. This
13  way, we can continue developing in trunk without delaying the next
14  release. Ivan Raikov maintains this branch.
15
16* release
17
18  Holds the version that is currently the official release. Here also
19  Ivan Raikov, the CHICKEN release manager rules.
20
21* elf
22
23  Development branch of elf, core developer.
24
25* irregular
26
27  Experimental branch for replacing PCRE with Alex Shinn's "irregex"
28  regular expression package (currently worked on by felix and Alex).
29
30* lfa
31
32  An attempt to implement "localized" flow- and type analysis (worked on
33  by felix).
34
35* lazy-gensyms
36
37  "Lazy" gensym print-name creation, borrowing an idea used by Dybvig
38  in his Chez system. Print-name slots (#1) of symbols may be fixnums,
39  and the name is generated, when actually required (see
40  "##sys#symbol-name"). Seems to work, and gensym creation is
41  definitely faster, but the overall performance doesn't appear to be
42  improved (actually, it seems to be worse than without the change).
43  Created by felix.
