Dear All,

I just released the release 0.8 -probably a beta quality release- of
the qish runtime which contains a generational copying garbage
collector (usable from C, in particular with some generated C code).

See http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qishintro.html and download
http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qish-0.8.tar.gz

It could interest any people implementing a language in need of a
Garbage Collector. Qish is probably a bit faster than Boehm's GC, but
it is not multithreaded and requires carefully written (or machine
generated) C code -respecting detailed (and documented) coding
conventions.

License is GNU lesser general public license = LGPL. 

Changes:

This release (0.8 on december 8th 2002)
  added experimental (barely tested) application explicit forwarding


################ past releases 

Qish-0.7, on december 07th 2002: (not announced here)
  LGPL license in all relevant files (only genqish.c stays in GPL).
  (added memoization for qish_prime_after)

Qish-0.6 on december 06th 2002
  should be compilable (with -DSTRICT_C99) on any ISOC99 compiler
  better documentation
  switched to LGPL license
  thanks to Fergus Henderson for comments & patch.

Regards.
