Process.popen is now able to run in nonblocking mode. If a second argument is provided a file object will be opened with that mode and return, enabling two way communication with the new process. o bin/precompile.pike Voidable pointer types are no longer promoted to mixed. o PIKE_PORTABLE_BYTECODE --with-portable-bytecode is now the default. Pike programs that have been dumped on one architecture now can be decoded on another.
Multiplication were bugged and gave B*A instead of A*B. Now fixed.
