As usual, problems show up as soon as I release a new version:-(

There are two known problems with version 2.3.0:

  * The libraries for the CBM-II series (cbm 6x0/7x0) are broken and will
    produce unresolved externals when trying to link. Since most people
    don't use this target, this does not seem to be a serious problem.
    The code is already fixed and will show up in the next release.

  * Compares for signed datatypes are broken for some values. This error
    is in the compiler for some time (at least since version 2.0) and
    no one seems to have noticed. Nevertheless, it's a serious error, and
    it is difficult to fix. The generated code is wrong, and it is used
    in the code generator, the optimizer works with it, and there is also
    a library routine that uses the code fragment. I will have to think
    about it.

The latter problem will force me to release a bugfix version soon. If you
are using the new compiler and find any problems, please notify me as
soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
