Harlequin's Adaptive Memory Management Group has updated The Memory
Management Reference, a set of web pages containing a glossary, a
bibliography, an FAQ, and other resources. This is a major release,
as we're moving to HTML 4.0 and style sheets; however, we aimed to
maintain the award-winning generic design, so most of you will not
notice the difference too much. There are also numerous improvements
to the contents, including:
  - a new survey article on memory management in various languages,
  - updated calendar,
  - a wider treatment of reference counting in all parts,
  - Java's three kinds of weakness rigorously defined,
  - new entries in the glossary:
          deferred reference counting,
          weighted reference counting,
          Java terms: soft/weak/phantom reference/reachable,
          collection cycle,
          and many others.

The pages are available at <URL:>.

As always, we hope you will find The Reference useful and informative,
and will be glad to hear your comments. Please send them to
