     3- literals are compiled in a platform-independent binary encoding into
     4  the executable which results in faster C compile times and moe compact
     5  binaries. This also makes the "compress-literals" option and declaration
     6  unnecessary
     7- the "-compress-literals" compiler option and the "compress-literals"
     8  declaration have been removed
     9- the CHICKEN_HOME environment variable is now obsolete, use CHICKEN_PREFIX
     10  and possibly CHICKEN_REPOSITORY_PATH
    311- added pre GC hook C-level variable

    1422  disable-interrupts
    1523  invalid-procedure-call-handler
     24- There is no platform-dependent pathname directory separator
     25  anymore, the slash ("/") and backslash ("\") characters can be
     26  used interchangably
     27- New procedures "regexp*", "regex-optimize" and "make-anchored-pattern"
     28  (regex library unit)
     29- New procedures "terminall-size", "terminal-name" and "get-host-name"
     30  (posix library unit)
    1631- chicken-setup: can create repository catalog file from local
    1732  SVN checkout of egg repository
     33- chicken-setup has the new option "-host-extension" to force
     34  compiling extensions in "host" mode when using a cross-compiling
     35  chicken
    1836- Better cross-development support for the build system (the
    1937  Makefile accepts various variables for customizing the build)
     
    2341- "andmap" and "ormap" have been deprecated
    2442- makefiles support relinking now
     43- added "thread-wait-for-i/o!" (srfi-18 library unit)
