5 The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 19a.
6 This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7 bugfixes from the 18e release.
8
9 CMUCL is a free, high performance implementation of the Common Lisp
10 programming language which runs on most major Unix platforms. It
11 mainly conforms to the ANSI Common Lisp standard. CMUCL provides a
12 sophisticated native code compiler; a powerful foreign function
13 interface; an implementation of CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System,
14 which includes multimethods and a metaobject protocol; a source-level
15 debugger and code profiler; and an Emacs-like editor implemented in
16 Common Lisp. CMUCL is maintained by a team of volunteers collaborating
17 over the Internet, and is mostly in the public domain.

19 New in this release:
20
21 * Feature enhancements:
22 - Stack overflow checking added for FreeBSD/x86 and Linux/x86.
23 - LISP:FIND-CLASS and LISP:CLASS-OF now return CLOS classes. The
24 symbols LISP:STARDARD-CLASS, LISP:BUILT-IN-CLASS, and
25 LISP:STRUCTURE-CLASS name CLOS class. It is no longer
26 necessary to SHADOWING-IMPORT these from PCL when doing MOP
27 programming, and it fixes some non-compliances as well.
28
29 * Numerous ANSI compliance fixes:
30
31 * Numerous bugfixes:

33 * Other changes:
34
35 * Numerous improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
36 - Gerd's PCL has been added, which fixes numerous bugs and ANSI/
37 AMOP non-compliances, and adds various new optimizations (also
38 see the CMU User Manual).

40 * Improvements to Hemlock, the Emacs-like editor:
41
42 * Changes to rebuilding procedure:

44 * Deprecated features:

47 This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
48 18e; you will need to recompile FASL files.
