Hi Camm.

| Just released a minor bugfix in 2.5.3 which was exposed in Axiom
| development.  The news submission is below.

The Windows 2.5.3 binary is in the download section.

| Perhaps we could discuss some priorities for the "road ahead"?
| Feedback on 2.5.2?  I hope all users find it an improvement over the
| 2.4 series.
| Some things I have in the back of my mind:
| * ANSI
| * Better libc dependence on ia64, eg. stack detection and gbc
| * floating point "quirks"
| * blas support, perhaps in compiler too

It might be worthwhile implementing UFFI as a first step towards doing this.
My recollection is that you mentioned this before your recent absence.

| * gcl as gcc frontend
| * axiom support
| * cleaning

Say we used a cross-platform compatible subset of, for example, the pthreads
library, or native API support for a few simple primitives, what else would
need to be done to support OS multi-threading under GCL?

Is OS multi-threading likely  to be important to GCL users in the near

If it is something we might do later, how might it affect the tentative
agenda set out above?
