1 ========================== C M U C L 20 a =============================
3 [--- WORK IN PROGRESS ---]
5 The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 20a.
6 This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7 bugfixes from the 19e 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.
19 New in this release:
22 * Feature enhancements:
24 * ANSI compliance fixes:
26 * Bugfixes:
27 - CMUCL sometimes gets "stuck" during compilation where it is
28 trying to simplify the union of a large number of disjoint
29 numeric types. Previously, we handled the case of integer
30 types. Extend this to handle floats as well.
32 * Trac Tickets:
33 #31: pathname bug with :case :common
34 Fixed. The common case is applied to each part of the directory,
35 not to the directory as a whole.
37 * Other changes:
39 * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
41 * Changes to building procedure:
43 This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
44 19f; you will need to recompile FASL files.
46 See <URL:http://www.cons.org/cmucl/> for download information,
47 guidelines on reporting bugs, and mailing list details.
50 We hope you enjoy using this release of CMUCL!
