this is an announcement of the new stable ac++ version 0.8. It can be 
downloaded from www.aspectc.org. Binaries for Linux and Win32 as well as 
the source code (GPL license) are available.
Binaries for MacOS X and Solaris can be compiled on demand. We also
updated the compiler manual.

The most important change is that g++ under the Windows/Cygwin 
environment is now a supported back-end compiler.

Here is the usual excerpt from the ChangeLog that describes the
improvements and fixes of this version:

Version 0.8 (2004-03-18)

         * added support for passing definitions of macros with arguments
           in the command line and the parser configuration file

         * extended the pumag++conf.pl script to handle paths in the
           cygwin environment correctly

         * documented the --config option, which can be used to provide
           the name of parser configuration file

         * the parser does not require PUMA_CONFIG being defined anymore

         * fixed further template-related parser problems

         * fixed problems with generated code that did not compile under
           MS Visual Studio .NET 2002

Some hints/warnings:

          1. Window/Cygwin users: ac++ is not a cygwin/g++ compiled
             executable. Thus, absulute path names given to ac++ have
             to be Windows-style names. For example, instead of
             /home/olaf use c:\cygwin\home\olaf or c:/cygwin/home/olaf.
             The pumag++conf.pl script is modified to deal with the names
             provided by cygwin/g++ correctly.

Please continue to help us improve the ac++ implementation by entering
bug reports at http://www.aspectc.org/bugzilla or simply asking
questions on this mailing list.

Best regards,
