2ac4992011-03-09Martin Stjernholm ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dca6762014-11-03Martin Nilsson New language features --------------------- o Unlimited character constant size. There is no longer any limit to the size of character constants, e.g. 'acdefghijk' creates the bignum 0x61636465666768696a6b.
9654e02015-10-15Martin Nilsson Incompatible changes -------------------- o Gz.crc32 now only returns positive results.
dca6762014-11-03Martin Nilsson Removed features and modules ---------------------------- o Compatibility for Pike versions before 7.8 is no longer available.
992e242015-08-24Martin Nilsson o GTK1 library is deprected, so glue code is removed.
83a8f52015-11-09Martin Nilsson C-level API changes ------------------- o The contract for functions is now changed so that a function is no longer required to clean the stack. The topmost value of the stack will be regarded as the return value and the rest of the items on the stack, compared to before the function arguments were pushed, will be popped and discarded. Efuns still have to clean their stack as previously.
dca6762014-11-03Martin Nilsson Building and installing ----------------------- o GMP 4.1 or later is now required.
