This is to announce a new release of Alto, a post link time
optimizer for Alpha CPUs.

Alto reads in a compiled and linked executable and produces an
optimized version of the executable. Alto currently is specific to
Alpha CPUs and DEC/COMPAQ Unix. It is tuned for the 21164 CPU. Alto
frequently improves the performance beyond that attained by high
levels of compiler optimization. Among other techniques, Alto makes
extensive use of profiling information. Alto is now able to instrument
executables itself so pixie is no longer required.

The software and documentation is available from the Alto Home Page:
