Stable version: 2.6.7
Testing Version: (cvs tag) Version_2_7_0t5

Greetings!  The GCL team is happy to announce the release of version
2.6.7, the latest achievement in the 'stable' (as opposed to
'development') series.  Please see http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl for
downloading information.

My apologies to Gordon Novak -- I had intended for this next stable
release to include xgcl support by default, but I have run out of
time, am leaving for a few days next week, and axiom is waiting for
the new webserver features.  xgcl does work with release as with 2.6.6
but must still be built explicitly in the xgcl2 subdirectory.  I will
try to rectify this as soon as feasible.

This release is a minor modification of 2.6.6, incorporating the known
bug fixes that had accumulated on the GCL errata page together with a
few other modifications primarily intended to provide a native
webserver feature to be used by axiom for displaying its documentation
and graphics.  The interested user is advised to consult the info
