5     The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 20c.
6     This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7     bug fixes from the 20b 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 multi-methods and a meta-object 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.
18    
19     New in this release:
20    
21     * Known issues:
22    
23     * Feature enhancements:
24 rtoy 1.2 - Update to Unicode 5.2.0.
25 rtoy 1.3 - Add support for character name completion. This can be used by
26     Slime to do character name completion.
27 rtoy 1.1
28     * ANSI compliance fixes:
29    
30     * Bugfixes:
31 rtoy 1.2 - The pairwise composition table is now correctly built.
32     Previously, it skipped over non-BMP codepoints. This also
33     requires a fix in %COMPOSE to handle non-BMP codepoints
34     correctly. The normalization test now passes.
35    
36 rtoy 1.1 * Trac Tickets:
37    
38     * Other changes:
39    
40     * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
41    
42     * Changes to building procedure:
43    
44     This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
45     20b; you will need to recompile FASL files.
46    
47     See <URL:http://www.cons.org/cmucl/> for download information,
48     guidelines on reporting bugs, and mailing list details.
