A couple more notes.
o The automatic garbage collection strategy is configurable The garbage collector can be configured to take both the amount of
garbage and the cpu time spent in the gc into account. See the
garbage and the cpu time spent in the gc into account.
gc runs can also be disabled in critical regions.
o sort() is stable
Unlike previous releases, sort() will keep the original order
between elements that are equal. This was not implemented as a
separate function since it could be done with virtually no extra
Language additions: -------------------
-------------- o Instantiation and destruction of pike-classes is now significantly faster.
o Handling of bignums has been optimized, especially conversion
to/from normal integers.
