Hi all!

A new development snapshot (5.0.1) is now available:

This is the first snapshot in the 5.x release series.  The most
important change is that this version changes how "qualified" symbols
are read.  These are symbols like ##sys#map or ##core#inline.  In
older versions, these symbols would be interned into a string that had
as its first byte the length of the "namespace", like "\003sysmap" or

This caused problems when printing non-qualified symbols that contained
such low bytes.  See for more
information.  Changing this representation is backwards-incompatible,
which means that the git version of CHICKEN must now be built with a
CHICKEN that's from this snapshot or newer.

There's a complete list of changes since the 5.0.0 release in the
NEWS file:

We would encourage all of our more adventurous users to try running
their code under this snapshot.  If you run into any problems with
the new snapshot, please let us know.
