SBCL 0.9.2 has been released.
From the NEWS file in the distribution:
changes in sbcl-0.9.2 relative to sbcl-0.9.1:
* numerous signal handling fixes to increase stability
* Support for EUC-JP external format. (thanks to NIIMI Satoshi)
* minor incompatible change: we now correctly canonize default
initargs, making them be a list of (INITARG INITFORM INITFUNCTION)
as per the MOP, rather than the historical (INITARG INITFUNCTION
INITFORM). (reported by Bruno Haible)
* new feature: WITH-COMPILATION-UNIT now accepts a non-standard
:SOURCE-PLIST option. See (DOCUMENTATION #'WITH-COMPILATION-UNIT T)
for more information.
* TRUENAME and PROBE-FILE now correctly resolve symlinks even if the
pathname is a directory pathname.
* SB-SPROF now works (more) reliably on non-GENCGC platforms.
* dynamic space size on PPC has been increased to 768Mb. (thanks to
* SB-MOP:ENSURE-CLASS-USING-CLASS now accepts a class as the
:METACLASS argument in addition to a class name. (reported by
Bruno Haible for CMUCL, patch for CMUCL by Gerd Moellmann)
* RESTART-CASE can now be wrapped around CALL-METHOD forms.
(reported by Bruno Haible; patch from Gerd Moellmann)
* bug fix: sbcl runtime can now be compiled with gcc4 (thanks to
* bug fix: more cleanups to the floating point exception handling on
x86-64 (thanks to James Knight)
* bug fix: the compiler does not try to constant fold calls of
COERCE and BIT-* functions when they return freshly constructed
objects. (reported by Nikodemus Siivola and Paul Dietz)
* optimization: improved the MIPS versions of generic (in the
generic sense) arithmetic routines. (thanks to Thiemo Seufer)
* optimization: direct conversion of (unsigned-byte 32) to floats on
the PowerPC platform.
* optimization: structure instances with raw slots now use less
memory, and probably show better memory locality. (thanks to
* optimization: DYNAMIC-EXTENT declarations for lists and closures
are treated as requests for stack allocation on the x86-64,
Alpha-32, PPC and SPARC platforms.
* contrib improvement: it's harder to cause SOCKET-CLOSE to close()
the wrong file descriptor; implementation of SOCKET-OPEN-P.

** gcing a dead thread can no longer lead to lockups
** threads block signals until they are set up properly
** errno is no longer shared by threads
** interrupt-thread restores the eflags register on x86
** fixed some lockups due to gc/thread interaction
* fixed some bugs revealed by Paul Dietz' test suite:
** invalid dotted lists no longer raise a read error when
*READ-SUPPRESS* is T
** signal an error if a symbol that names a declaration is used
as the name of a type, or vice versa
** allow using the (declare (typespec var*)) abbreviation for
(declare (type typespec var*)) with all type specifiers
** circularity detection works properly with PPRINT-LOGICAL-BLOCK
** always return NIL from PPRINT-POP when OBJECT is NIL
** don't signal errors when pretty-printing malformed LABELS,
FLET or MACROLET forms
** declarations in a DOLIST body are also in scope for the
** COMPILE-FILE accepts all pathname designators as INPUT-FILE
** the ELEMENT-TYPE keyword argument to WITH-OUTPUT-STREAM is
