Hi, folks!

A new snapshot is (finallly) available (version 2.207).

What's new:

- Bugfixes, as usual
- csc:
  * new option `-objc' compiles generated C files in Objective-C mode
  * accepts .m files
  * new option `-framework' is passed to linker on Mac OS X
  * options `-cflags', `-ldflags' and `-libs'
- chicken-setup:
  * detects whether eggs are gzipped or not and accepts ungzipped eggs
  * if no other actions are specified and no eggs are given on the
command line, then
    all .setup scripts in the current directory are executed
  * added `setup-build-directory' and `setup-root-directory' parameters
- Chicken can now be build with the CMake build tool on Windows
- `extension-info' has been renamed to `extension-information'. The old name is
  still available, but deprecated
- `print-backtrace' has been renamed to `print-call-chain'. The old
name is still
  available (and deprecated)
- library:
  (get-call-chain [DEPTH])
  (copy-read-table READ-TABLE)
- evaluated code generates call-trace information (as compiled code does), which
  results in much better back-traces.
- standard SRFI-17 setters are now optimized to primitive calls in most cases
- added SRFI-17 setters for many accessors of the core libraries
- tinyclos: added a couple of missing classes for core library structures
- added compiler/runtime support for object serialization via the
`s11n' extension
  (see <>)
