MMIXware Version 1 Is Now Stable
The current source files for
MMIXware are henceforth "100% correct," in
the sense that any remaining bugs will be defined to be features.
Thanks to the many correspondents who have given these programs extensive
use and provided helpful feedback during the past dozen years.
These are the most difficult programs that I've ever written, and I
am pleased that they now seem to be in quite good shape.
An excellent group of volunteers in Germany will take care of all future
versions and discussions, and their
new MMIX home pages
are already taking shape nicely.
