Tcl/Tk 8.4.19 Release Announcement
April 18, 2008

The Tcl Core Team is pleased to announce the 8.4.19 releases of the Tcl
dynamic language and the Tk toolkit.  This is the nineteenth patch release
of Tcl/Tk 8.4.  More details can be found below.  We would like to
express our gratitude to all those who submit bug reports and patches.
This information is invaluable in enabling us to identify and eliminate
problems in the core.

Routine maintenance of Tcl/Tk 8.4 has now come to an end.  We intend
Tcl/Tk 8.4.19 to be the final 8.4.* releases.  The current stable releases of
Tcl/Tk are 8.5.2, and development has begun on Tcl/Tk 8.6.  It is possible
that a bug fix of great enough importance or severity might prompt a
release of 8.4.20, but there is no plan for that at the moment.  Even
that level of support will fade away quickly.

Where to get the new releases:

Tcl/Tk 8.4.19 sources are freely available as open source from the
Tcl Developer Xchange web site at:
