Dear Bluebottle users,

the changes in the compiler due to the new object file format (*.Bbx) 
made Bluebottle a less stable system than it was before Dec. 13, 05.
This is why we decided to undo these changes and publish a Bluebottle 
release with still the old object file format (*.Obx).
A new release of Bluebottle as of April 3, 2006 is available for 
download. It uses the old object file format (*.Obx) but contains all 
new changes, corrections, modifications described in the change log 
since Dec. 13, 05 that are not related to this rollback.

We know that the current release is still suboptimal what memory 
consumption is concerned. However, with this release it is possible to 
compile large modules without getting traps and to build new releases in 
the order of a few minutes. It makes working with the system more 
comfortable again.

Best regards and good luck with the new release
