     5      5   1. No more [command1] [command2] construct for grouping multiple
     6      6   commands on a single command line.

................................................................................
  4204   4204   3/18/99 (feature change) The glob command ignores the
  4205   4205   FS_CASE_IS_PRESERVED bit on file systesm and always returns
  4206   4206   exactly what it gets from the system. (stanton)

  4208   4208   
  4209   4209   3/19/99 (new feature) Added support for --enable-64bit.  For now,
  4210   4210   this is only supported on Solaris 7 64bit (SunOS 5.7) using the Sun
  4211         -compiler (redman).

  4213         -3/23/99 (bug fix) Fixed fileevents and gets on Windows consoles
  4214         -so that non-blocking channels do not block on partial input lines.
  4215         -(redman)
         4213  +3/23/99 (bug fix) Fixed fileevents and gets on Windows consoles and
         4214  +serial devices so that non-blocking channels do not block on partial
         4215  +input lines.  (redman)
  4216   4216   
  4217   4217   3/23/99 (bug fix) Added a new Tcl_ServiceModeHook interface.
  4218   4218   This is used on Windows to avoid the various problems that people
  4219   4219   have been seeing where the system hangs when tclsh is running
  4220   4220   outside of the event loop. As part of this, renamed
  4221   4221   TclpAlertNotifier back to Tcl_AlertNotifier since it is public.

  4251   4251   3/29/99 (bug fix)  Removed the stub functions and changed the stub
  4252   4252   macros to just use the name without params. Pass &tclStubs into the
  4253   4253   interp (don't use tclStubsPtr because of collisions with the stubs on
  4254   4254   Solaris). (redman)

         4256  +3/30/99 (bug fix) Loadable modules are now unloaded at the last
         4257  +possible moment during Tcl_Finalize to fix various exit-time crashes.

         4259  +
         4260  +3/30/99 (bug fix) Tcl no longer calls setlocale().  It looks at
         4261  +env(LANG) and env(LC_TYPE) instead.  (stanton)
  4255   4262   
  4256   4263   4/1/99 (bug fix) Fixed the Ultrix multiple symbol definition problem.
  4257   4264   Now, even Tcl includes a copy of the Tcl stub library. (redman)
  4258   4265   
  4259   4266   4/1/99 (bug fix) Internationalized the registry package.
  4260   4267   
  4261   4268   4/1/99 (bug fix) Changed the implemenation of Tcl_ConditionWait and
................................................................................
  4273   4280   send command from the Windows version.  Changed DDE-based send
  4274   4281   code into "dde eval" command.  The DDE package can be loaded
  4275   4282   into tclsh, not just wish.  Windows only. (redman)
  4276   4283   
  4277   4284   4/5/99 (bug fix) Changed safe-tcl so that the encoding command
  4278   4285   is an alias that masks out the "encoding system" subcommand.
  4279   4286   (redman)
         4287  +
         4288  +4/5/99 (bug fix) Configure patches to improve support for
         4289  +OS/390 and BSD/OS 4.*. (stanton)
         4290  +
         4291  +4/5/99 (bug fix) Fixed crash in the clock command that occurred
         4292  +with negative time values in timezones east of GMT. (stanton)
