     12.739
     2
     3- the SVN checkout can now be built from a bootstrapping tarball without
     4  the need for a pre-installed "chicken" executable
     5- literals are compiled in a platform-independent binary encoding into
     6  the executable which results in faster C compile times and moe compact
     7  binaries. This also makes the "compress-literals" option and declaration
     8  unnecessary
     9- the "-compress-literals" compiler option and the "compress-literals"
     10  declaration have been removed
     11- the CHICKEN_HOME environment variable is now obsolete, use CHICKEN_PREFIX
     12  and possibly CHICKEN_REPOSITORY_PATH
    313- added pre GC hook C-level variable
    414- Cygwin is now fully supported
     
    1424  disable-interrupts
    1525  invalid-procedure-call-handler
     26- There is no platform-dependent pathname directory separator
     27  anymore, the slash ("/") and backslash ("\") characters can be
     28  used interchangably
     29- New procedures "regexp*", "regex-optimize" and "make-anchored-pattern"
     30  (regex library unit)
     31- New procedures "terminall-size", "terminal-name" and "get-host-name"
     32  (posix library unit)
    1633- chicken-setup: can create repository catalog file from local
    1734  SVN checkout of egg repository
     35- chicken-setup has the new option "-host-extension" to force
     36  compiling extensions in "host" mode when using a cross-compiling
     37  chicken
    1838- Better cross-development support for the build system (the
    1939  Makefile accepts various variables for customizing the build)
     
    2343- "andmap" and "ormap" have been deprecated
    2444- makefiles support relinking now
     45- added "thread-wait-for-i/o!" (srfi-18 library unit)
     46- the "chicken-bug" program can now be used to create bug reports
     47  and send them to the CHICKEN maintainers
