Notes on the status of this site
This page hasn't been maintaned for quite a long time and isn't updated regularly anymore.
Links to resources related to Modula-3 tend to vanish without notice now and then.
The source repositories containing the
code distributions have been moved to github.com/modula3
several years ago. As the web pages containing this site haven't followed and a maintainer still
has to be found, elego Software Solutions GmbH is still keeping this VM running as a landing
page for Modula-3. Anybody wishing to improve this situation is welcome to contact me.

CM3 5.8 Release Candidate 2 available
The CM3 5.8 release is now nearing its completion. View the
download page for the current release candidate.
The release notes and
will be of interest for all who want to try it.
Several packages for RC2 are already available. See the
for information about the release engineering status.
Hudson-based CM3 Continuous Integration and Regression Test Framework
Continuous integration for all changes on the release branch
has been added via a distributed Hudson setup. After the
release is completed, this continuous build and test system
will be used for mainline development.
CM3 Regression Test Framework and Daily Snapshots
A regression test framework based on Tinderbox has been set
up. Currently only two target platforms are build nightly,
but more will be added. See the Tinderbox Page for details.
There also is a
package status page based on recent build results.
Nightly build installation archives for
several platforms are also available.
m3.org moved to modula3.org
The Modula-3 home has moved from www.m3.org to
www.modula3.org, which we believe is both a more intuitive name
and also consistent with the modula3 newsgroup. The server for
m3.org will be taken down soon; till then it provides a simple
forwarding service to this page.
The CM3 5.4.0 release is now available from the
announcement didn't make it into the 5.4.0 download archives,
but is available online.
There are now three Modula-3 mailing lists, concerned with
announcements, development, and CVS log messages of CM3 and
PM3. You can browse and search the mailing list archives at
CM3 5.2.6 has
been released. This release adds the PPC_LINUX target platform, a
new code generator based on gcc 3.2.3, and several bug
fixes and small extensions. Have a look at the RELNOTES_5_2_6
for details. CM3 5.2.6 also includes the errno fixes that make it
work together with glibc 2.3.2 (see below).
Ezm3 1.1 is now available! This new release includes an updated
code generator (based on gcc 3.2.1) which allows support of newer
platforms. This release adds support for FreeBSD/sparc64. It also
works correctly with Linux systems based on glibc 2.3.2,
including Red Hat 9, SuSE 8.2, and CRUX 1.1.
