The following message is a courtesy copy of an article

You are cordially invited to try the new CLISP pre-pretest at
Main attractions are full MOP support (more complete than in any other
implementation) and ability to allocate 4+GB of memory (used in
production environment with 10GB heaps).
Full list of new features: <http://www.podval.org/~sds/clisp/NEWS>
This is a _pre-pretest_.
It is known to have bugs, e.g., to avoid random contagion warnings, set
CUSTOM:*WARN-ON-FLOATING-POINT-CONTAGION* to NIL.
No portability testing has been done (it is known to build on mingw,
cygwin, fc3 linux amd32, RHEL3 amd64 though).
At this time we are mostly interested in
- bug reports about MOP and large heaps
- any patches (especially portability)
