5     The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 19e.
6     This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7     bugfixes from the 19d 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:

21    
22     * Feature enhancements:
23    
24     * ANSI compliance fixes:
25 rtoy 1.3 - BOA constructors with &AUX variables are handled better now.
26 rtoy 1.1
27     * Bugfixes:
28 rtoy 1.2 - Floating-point traps are now handled on ppc. Previously, no
29     traps were signalled and SET-FLOATING-POINT-MODES did nothing.
30 rtoy 1.3 - FILE-POSITION no longer returns negative values for mapped
31     file-simple-stream's.
32 rtoy 1.1
33     * Trac Tickets:
34    
35     * Other changes:
36    
37     * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
38 rtoy 1.2 - Forward-referenced classes are allowed.
39 rtoy 1.1
40     * Changes to rebuilding procedure:
41    
42     This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
43     19d; you will need to recompile FASL files.
44    
45     See <URL:http://www.cons.org/cmucl/> for download information,
46     guidelines on reporting bugs, and mailing list details.

49     We hope you enjoy using this release of CMUCL!
