Most of the activity on the group this week has been bug related, mostly with Tcl 8.1.x - with the current rate of bug reports we can hopefully reach stable production quality with either 8.1.2 or more likely 8.1.3.

Quote of the week (care of Richard Suchenwirth) "In Perl, you're stuck with a syntax. In Tcl, you can make one up;-)"
