I just released version 1.1.1 of the Voodoo Compiler. This release implements support for the latest version of the Voodoo language. The following features have been added:

* Stack memory allocation (auto-bytes, auto-words).

* Support for non-local control flow (save-frame, restore-frame). This allows the implementation of things like catch/throw and exceptions.

* Object files created by the Voodoo compiler can now be used in shared libraries.

* Substitute tokens, allowing symbolic names to be used for implementation-defined numeric values (e.g. %saved-frame-size).

* set now accepts at-expressions for the location to store the value at.
