## 4.0.1

This is a production release that only adds one thing: flushing output when it is printed with a print statement.

## 4.0.0

This is a production release with many fixes, a new command-line option, and a big surprise:

  • A bug was fixed in dc's P command where the item on the stack was *not* popped.
  • Various bugs in the manuals have been fixed.
  • A known bug was fixed where history did not interact well with prompts printed by user code without newlines.
  • A new command-line option, -R and --no-read-prompt was added to disable just the prompt when using read() (bc) or ? (dc).
  • And finally, official support for Windows was added.

The last item is why this is a major version bump.

Currently, only one set of build options (extra math and prompt enabled, history and NLS/locale support disabled, both calculators enabled) is supported on Windows. However, both debug and release builds are supported.

In addition, Windows builds are supported for the the library (bcl).

For more details about how to build on Windows, see the [README][5] or the [build manual][13].
