Bison test version 2.0a is now available.  It contains mostly bug
fixes for Bison 2.0.  Our intention is to generate a new official
release soon, based on feedback from this test version.

Here is the URL:

To try this test version, please make sure you have GNU m4 1.4.3
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.3.tar.gz> installed, and then execute
the following shell commands or their equivalents:

   wget ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-2.0a.tar.gz

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.

Bison is a parser generator that is compatible with Yacc.
Please see <http://www.gnu.org/software/bison/> for more info about Bison.

Here is a list of user-visible changes in version 2.0a, compared to 2.0:

* Bison-generated C parsers use the _ macro to translate strings from
  English to the user's language, e.g., _("syntax error").  By default,
  _ is defined to be a no-op macro so the strings are not translated.

* When generating verbose diagnostics, Bison-generated C parsers no longer
  quote the literal strings associated with tokens.  For example, for
  a syntax error associated with '%token NUM "number"' they might
  print 'syntax error, unexpected number' instead of 'syntax error,
  unexpected "number"'.
