sbcl-0.8.10 has been released.
from the NEWS file:
changes in sbcl-0.8.10 relative to sbcl-0.8.9:
* Support for the forthcoming 2.0 version of the NetBSD kernel
running on x86 hardware has been added. (thanks to Perry
E. Metzger most immediately, and others for their past work)
* SBCL now runs on OpenBSD 3.4. (Thanks to Scott Parish; 3.4 is the
current release version; SBCL's OpenBSD support had been broken
since about the time of OpenBSD's switch to ELF binary format.)
* [placeholder for DX summary]
** user code with &REST lists declared dynamic-extent, under high
speed or space and low safety and debug optimization policy.
* The manual has been converted to Texinfo format and the debugger
chapter from the cmucl manual has been added.
* A facility has been added to extract documentation strings from
sbcl and store them as Texinfo-formatted snippets for inclusion in
the manual (via Texinfo's @include directive)
* bug fix: compiler emitted division in optimized DEREF. (thanks for
the test case to Dave Roberts)
* bug fix: multidimensional simple arrays loaded from FASLs had fill
pointers. (reported by Sean Ross)
* bug fix: PROFILE output is printed nicely even for large numerical
values. (thanks to Zach Beane)
* bug fix: streams with element-type (SIGNED-BYTE <N>) for <N>
greater than 32 handle EOF correctly.
* bug fix: on X86 an immediate argument of the IMUL instruction is
correctly printed in disassembly. (thanks to Lutz Euler)
* bug fix: class slots in redefined classes preserve their old
values. (thanks to Bruno Haible and Nikodemus Siivola)
* bug fix: compilation of funcalls of CXX+R (e.g. CDDR) now
succeeds. (reported by Marco Baringer)
* fixed some bugs revealed by Paul Dietz' test suite:
** READ-SEQUENCE now works on ECHO-STREAMs.
** RATIONALIZE works more according to its specification. (thanks
to Bruno Haible)
