This release introduces many bugfixes, most of them backported from the development versions. It also runs under Windows, and introduces several minor features.

The release will shortly be available from:

The changes are as follows:

* Added #% as a shortcut for CharacterArray>>#bindWithArguments:.

* Added #allButFirst, #allButFirst:, #allButLast, #allButLast:, #atAll:, #removeAllSuchThat: to Collection.

* Added #join to SequenceableCollection.

* Added symbolic link creation to File.

* A race condition was fixed where a file handler was resurrected and another object inside it had already been finalized.

* Pipe FileStreams use OS pipes or socketpairs instead of a pseudo-tty.

* Fixed bitrot in the debugger.

* Fixed bug where ~= was computed incorrectly as = (e.g. 3 ~= 3.0e).

* Fixed bug with growing of the Undeclared dictionary.

* Fixed many minor bugs.

* Fixed GC bug that could cause crashes if two GCs happened at particularly unlucky spots.

* Fixes to File and Directory for Windows.

* Fixes to MIME message parsing, UTF-7 encoding and XPath.

* VariableBinding objects were made read-only when used as literals.

Have fun and report bugs!
