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, felix breaks things.
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. Not used that much.
24
25* lazy-gensyms
26
27  "Lazy" gensym print-name creation, borrowing an idea used by Dybvig
28  in his Chez system. Print-name slots (#1) of symbols may be fixnums,
29  and the name is generated, when actually required (see
30  "##sys#symbol-name"). Seems to work, and gensym creation is
31  definitely faster, but the overall performance doesn't appear to be
32  improved (actually, it seems to be worse than without the change).
33  Created by felix.
34
35* scrutiny
36
37  An experimental lightweight flow analysis for finding common type-
38  related bugs and simple argument-count mismatches to standard
39  library procedures. Created by felix.
