[ANN] critcl v3 and other news




Some news regarding Jean-Claude Wippler's venerable "C Runtime In
Tcl" package and application, short "critcl".

First, the sources have changed locations and can now be found on
github. More precisely, at

http://jcw.github.com/critcl/

Second, the whole package got a refresh, with brand new innards
eliminating some problems, and a host of new features. Here we provide
only a short list of these features. For more details see the
'Changes' sections in the reference manpages [1], or the files
"doc/include/changes*.inc" which are the shared source of said
sections.

* Declaration, export and import of C-APIs through stubs tables.

* Generation of source packages from critcl-based code
containing a TEA-based buildsystem wrapped around the raw
critcl.

* Declaration, initializaton and use of user-specified
configuration options. An important use is the declaration and
use of custom build configurations, like 'link a 3rd party
library dynamically, statically, build it from copy of its
sources, etc.', etc.

The sources come with examples for all these, found in the
subdirectory "examples/" (sic).
