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.

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.

23 * Feature enhancements:
24 - Update to Unicode 5.2.0.
25
26 * ANSI compliance fixes:
27
28 * Bugfixes:
29 - The pairwise composition table is now correctly built.
30 Previously, it skipped over non-BMP codepoints. This also
31 requires a fix in %COMPOSE to handle non-BMP codepoints
32 correctly. The normalization test now passes.

36 * Other changes:

38 * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:

40 * Changes to building procedure:
41
42 This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
43 20b; you will need to recompile FASL files.
