With today's release of the 1.68, the 1.67 development line is now officially closed. Well, it was the longest development time for a milestone release up to date, so it was really high time to finish it. Wink

But the "What's new" for 1.68 is a summarization of the entire 1.67 line. I don't know if there was a change from the last 1.67 to 1.68 (I forgot to save a copy of the old WHATSNEW.TXT), but I believe that the intent of 1.68 is to provide a version with all the improvements from 1.67 and to confirm that it was tested thoroughly and that it is officially stable.

- Minor enhancements (VMXxx)
- Optimizations in the formatter (don't write higher bytes if ZERO - memory already ZERO'ized ???)
- Some source switches from "optimal fill" to "non-optimal fill" or vice versa
- Marginally reduced bloat (-9 Bytes in DOS IDE) Smile
- Added SSSSE4&Co into the manual
- Misc minor fixes in the manual
- Completely deleted 1.67 from WHATSNEW.TXT Shocked
- Unreal is back (???, compared to some 1.67.3xx versions, not last 1.67.38 ... ) haven't tested yet ...
- Changed Sigi of debug format, see t=9950

EDIT : updated info

You are right, that was the intent - I planned to only to documentation upgrade for this final release and leave the code as it was in 1.67.38. However, while documenting all the added instruction set extensions, I found that I'm still missing a few instructions, so I have added them. The added instructions are INVEPT, INVVPID and LZCNT.

Oh, right, I should correct this.

That's how the stable release vs. development line works. From the milestone release point of view, 1.68 comes immediately after 1.66. Read the earlier entries in WHATSNEW to see the pattern.

It was enabled back for a very long time and 1.67.38 had it, but you ignored my tries to tell you this.

Because I was focusing more on the future (your new secret solution to the problem) rather than to check every single 1.67.3xx release whether it has it or not, and I use mostly the IDE not having it anyway, so it's not really hot for me.

Still a small problem with the opengl example...
