nasm-0.98.38-1 is now available for download.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
=======================
Many many developers all over the net respect NASM for what it is
- a widespread (thus netwide), portable (thus netwide!), very
flexible and mature assembler tool with support for many output
formats (thus netwide!!).

RELEASE NOTES:
==============

Upstream news from the CHANGES file:
------------------------------------

* Add Makefile for 16-bit DOS binaries under OpenWatcom, and modify
      mkdep.pl to be able to generate completely pathless dependencies, as
      required by OpenWatcom wmake (it supports path searches, but not
      explicit paths.)
* Fix the STR instruction.
* Fix the ELF output format, which was broken under certain
      circumstances due to the addition of stabs support.
* Quick-fix Borland format debug-info for -f obj
* Fix for %rep with no arguments (#560568)
* Fix concatenation of preprocessor function call  (#794686)
* Fix long label causes coredump (#677841)
* Use autoheader as well as autoconf to keep configure from generating
      ridiculously long command lines.
* Make sure that all of the formats which support debugging output
      actually will suppress debugging output when -g not specified.

Other notes:
------------
* Docs are now in /usr/share for FHS compliancy.
* Linked with Cygwin 1.5.4-1.
* Added Charles Bilyue's coff patch.  This adds a new coff output format 
that will link properly with Cygwin.  Use it like:
nasm -f gnuwin32 mycoff.asm
gcc mycoff.o myc.c

As always, you should conduct an appropriate level of testing before using 
any new product in your production environment.
