SigScheme 0.8.3 Release Note
============================

What's SigScheme
----------------

SigScheme is a R5RS Scheme interpreter for embedded use.

It features small footprint (64KB in library form on the 'small' configuration)
like SIOD and TinyScheme, low memory consumption (2-words per cons cell),
multibyte characters handling (UTF-8, EUCs and Shift_JIS) and more.

It is mainly developed to be the Scheme interpreter of uim.

About This Release
------------------

This distribution of SigScheme 0.8.3 is latest stable release of the
software. And this release will be adopted for uim 1.5.0, the primary
application of SigScheme.

This release only fixes bugs found after 0.8.0.

See 'NEWS' for the fully detailed changes.

See the file 'QALog' about quality assurance state.

Please report us if you find a problem. And if you have a time, run
'make-report.sh' and send us the result regardless of PASSed or FAILed. It
greatly helps the development, especially for non-PC platforms.

Notes for Packagers and System Integrators
------------------------------------------

  - 0.8.0 introduced various system-installed Scheme libraries. Please install
    them in addition to libsscm

  - libgcroots has been updated and bundled in this release. Since it is
    installed as a separated library independent of libsscm, please create its
    own package, and make SigScheme package depending on it with
    "--with-libgcroots=installed"

  - The ABI of libsscm varies by configuration. So to make libsscm sharable,
    please specify "--enable-conf=full" and keep other feature options
    untouched for system-installed library

  - The options "--enable-debug" and/or "--enable-backtrace" make SigScheme
    quite heavy. Please keep them unspecified for normal library
