Another new snapshot; no dramatic changes this time. There's no binary for PPC Macs (I don't have one to build on), but if someone wants to build a binary I'll upload it.

There's a new snapshot available: 20070909. This one has support for current systems, including Mac OS X. 32-bit PowerPC support is provided using the C back end to the compiler.

Another new snapshot, 20070205, is now available.

This is the first version of MIT/GNU Scheme to support the Mac, albeit just the new Intel Macs.

I previously stated that this snapshot would have support for the C back end -- I lied. This snapshot was pushed out because it's the beginning of term here at MIT and we need a sync point. The C back end is almost ready for release -- Taylor's working on it -- but it's still a few weeks off. When it's finished we'll release another snapshot.

Thanks to the amazing Bill Rozas, the C back end for the compiler has been revived. This means that MIT/GNU Scheme will run on all of the popular modern architectures, including x86_64 and PowerPC, so those of you with Macs or 64-bit machines will be able to use MIT/GNU Scheme on them.

The next snapshot, due as soon as I can get everything in order, will contain this support.
