- Language:
   * Warning for capture variables and projections that always return the empty
     sequence.
   * Major rewrite of the support for XML Schema
     * removed print_schema directive
     * removed the "kind" selector (e.g. S # t as element)
     * include,import implemented
     * support wildcards any,anyAttrivbute
     * support xsi:nil
     * support xsd:decimal,xsd:float
     * many bug fixes
   * Removed the syntax  "external {...}", replaced with
     "unit.val with { ty1 ty2 ... }".
   * Removed the syntax H:val, replaced with H.val.
   * Removed the syntax S#t, replaced with S.t.
   * Overloaded the dot (record field acces, CDuce, OCaml, Schema units).
     A dot in an identifier must now be escaped with a backslash, e.g. x\.y
   * Identifiers (for types, values) are now qualified names.
   * float_of: String -> Float

- Tools:
24
   * A new tool cduce_mktop produces customized CDuce toplevels with embedded 
25
     OCaml externals.
26
   * Removed the validate tool.

- Implementation:
   * Various bug fixes

- Language:
  * Runtime type-check: (e :? t) raises an exception when e doesn't 
    have type t; the exception is an explanation of why this is not the case.
    (The actual message may change in the future.)
  * Better return type for load_xml, defined as:
    AnyXml=<(Atom) (Record)>[ (AnyXml|Char)* ]
  * New style for comments: /* ... */
    Simple and double quotes within these comments are not handled
    specially. Moreover, these comments cannot be nested.
    The new style should be used for textual comments (which can include
    the simple quote); the old style is better for ignoring pieces of code.
  * Pattern guard /p in regexps to match the current tail. This can be used
    for setting "markers" without capturing anything, e.g.:
       [ (/(x:=1) ...) | (/(x:=2) ...) ]
    Back to the old semantics for default value patterns in regexps
    (they do capture an element).
  * New syntax  {...; l = p else p'; ... }. p' is applied
    to the whole matched record when p does not match (or when
    the field is missing). Equivalent to:
    { ...; l = p; ...} | ({...;...} & p')
  * Punning in record/attribute expressions and patterns.
    { x; y } is a shorthand for {x=x;y=y}.
  * New syntax for R**n in regular expressions, equivalent
    to R...R (n times), where n > 0.
  * Interval arithmetic for the * operator.
  * Warning for potential division by 0.
  * New "system", "exit", "getenv" built-in functions.

- Toplevel, interpreter, compiler:
  * New #silent, #verbose directives.
  * New --script option.
  * Removed the warning "no caml interface".

- Compilation:
  * Better compilation of sequence capture variables.
    Now, [ ... x::Any* ] is as efficient as [ ... ; x ]. Can also be written
    [ ... /x _* ]. The [ ... ; ... ] syntax is no longer necessary
    and might be deprecated.
    
- Bug fixes, including:
  * Bug fixes in configure/Makefile for Cygwin.
  * Bug fix for the compilation of complex patterns with records.
  * Fixed a little bit support for XML Schema, but still largely broken.
  * Fix --stdin.
83
  * Bug fix in print_xml (do not create a namespace decl for "xml:").
84

85
- Distribution:
86
  * apps-cduce-cvs GODI package is updatable.
87 88
  * The release tarball does not contain the CDuce website, only
    the HTML documentation (memento, tutorial, manual).
