I just released version 1.1.2 of the Voodoo Compiler. This release comes with the following bug fixes and improvements:

* Fixed the allocation of space for local variables. Previously, let incantations inside blocks inside if incantations were not considered, which caused incorrect behavior when such let incantations were used.

* Fixed the computation of offsets for local variables on ARM. A bug in the way these offsets were computed caused incorrect behavior due to local variables being stored in the same memory locations as other values.

* Fixed the parser so that numbers after line continuation escapes are parsed as numbers, not symbols.

* Made the handling of undeclared symbols more consistent. voodooc now rejects code that uses symbols that have not been defined or imported with an error message. Previously, the behavior depended on whether or not the assembler accepted the generated code.

* make gem now configures the Voodoo Compiler with default assembler names, rather than using the configuration of the host system.
