SLIME is available from the Git repository on
github.com. You have the option to use either the very latest
code or the tagged
The latest version tends to have more features and fewer bugs than the
FAIRLY-STABLE version, but it can be unstable during times of
major surgery. As a rule-of-thumb recommendation we suggest that if
you follow the
slime-devel mailing list then you’re better off
with the latest version (we’ll send a note when it’s undergoing major
hacking). If you don’t follow the mailing list you won’t know the
status of the latest code, so tracking
FAIRLY-STABLE or using a
released version is the safe option.
If you download from Git then remember to
occasionally. Improvements are continually being committed, and the
FAIRLY-STABLE tag is moved forward from time to time.
