Dear Prolog user,

SWI-Prolog 8.0.1 (stable) is available for download. As expected, the
main issues are related to ports and packaging. I think this version is
ready for building distributions and stable applications.

The development version is diverting rapidly. It provides portable saved
states and QLF files, multi-architecture support for foreign code in
saved state, a start for XSB compatibility, better support for HTTP REST
routing, enhancements to JSON reading and much more.

Enjoy --- Jan

SWI-Prolog Changelog since version 8.0.0

* FIXED: add -rdynamic to cflags to export symbols (fix #420) Only do
this if we do not put the Prolog core in a shared object. * After
cmake 3.4 -rdynamic is not added when building a
target. This breaks the android termux build. This patch
solves the problem.

* TEST: Fixed test that broke due to assert to a static procedure
unrelated to the test.

* FIXED: Issue#81: assert/1 and friends must produce a permission error
if the predicate is not dynamic and defined.

* FIXED: in_temporary_module/3: destroy the load context for files
loaded into this module.

* FIXED: load_files/2: Added predicate option declaration for

* CLEANUP: Proper range test (LONG_MAX -> INPTR_T_MAX)
