    v7 v8  
    3535 * new codegen by default
    3636
     37 * '''Improved floating point register allocation.''' On x86-64 there are now six machine registers available for any mixture of floating-point types. Previously a maximum of four values of type Float and two values of type Double could simultaneously be kept in machine registers.
     38
     39 * '''SIMD primitives.''' The simd branch now supports passing SSE vector values in machine registers. We expect the simd branch to be merged in time for 7.8.
