Open Dylan 2013.1 releasedΒΆ

Dear Dylan Hacker,

It is a pleasure for us to announce a new release of Open Dylan.

We have extensive release notes, but this release has been about iterative improvement rather than major changes.

  • A deadlock when using threads on x86-linux has been addressed.
  • A crash when using threads on x86-linux has also been addressed.
  • A crash from memory corruption on Mac OS X has been fixed.
  • Some errors in how the Windows Registry was used have been corrected.
  • There have been significant improvements to the documentation.
  • A licensing issue with an unacknowledged copyright has been corrected.

Please report problems that you have in our issue tracker.

You can get it from our website, http://opendylan.org/download/. On Windows there is an installer, on UNIX systems unpack into /opt. On 64 bit Linux, you will need to have the Boehm GC installed for our executables to run. (Ubuntu: apt-get install libgc)

Also, remember that this weekend, July 13-14 is our hack-a-thon and we hope that you’ll consider participating. You may also sign up for the hack-a-thon at our Google Plus event page.

Good luck and happy Dylan hacking!
