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.

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.

26 - MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND accepts &REST and friends in the var list.
27 - When constructing logical pathnames, all components will be
28 automatically upcased. Needed for print/read consistency, and
