This master of science thesis describes a new design and its implementation for an Oz compiler. The project is based on the existing Oz compiler. The new compiler is designed more modular, with separate software components that can be replaced and modified locally. A prototype has been implemented, but further development is necessary. We give an overview of the language Oz, its features and the underlying calculus. The features of Oz regarding object orientation, functional programming, logic and constraint programming are also discussed. The liveness analysis and register allocation problems in general and regarding Oz specific compilers are analyzed, together with current and future optimizations suitable for the Mozart platform. The design of the new compiler and information about the old one is presented, and future work regarding the compiler, optimizations, and analysis phases is discussed. Appendices describing the interfaces between the phases of the compiler is included, together with documentation regarding the internal code formats used.
