and is now in the usual SourceForge places.
from the NEWS file in the distribution:
changes in sbcl-0.9.10 relative to sbcl-0.9.9:
* new feature: new SAVE-LISP-AND-DIE keyword argument :EXECUTABLE can
be used for bundling the runtime and the core file into one
executable binary. This feature is not currently supported on all SBCL
platforms. (thanks to James Bielman and NIIMI Satoshi)
* new feature: a generational or ephemeral garbage collector is now
the default on the PowerPC platform (both Linux and Darwin). The
old Cheney (stop and copy) collector is a build-time option.
(thanks to Cyrus Harmon, after Raymond Toy)
* minor incompatible change: the method by which SBCL finds its
contributed modules has changed; it no longer relies on symbolic
links from an $SBCL_HOME/systems directory, but searches directly
in the subdirectories of $SBCL_HOME.
* enhancement: the dynamic heap size on the Linux/PPC platform is
markedly larger, even using the older Cheney garbage collector.
* fixed bug #399: full call to DATA-VECTOR-REF in accesses to
certain complicated string types. (reported by Gary King)
* fixed bug: STRING-TO-OCTETS and OCTETS-TO-STRING did not convert
character codes. (thanks to Yaroslav Kavenchuk and Ivan Boldyrev)
* fixed bug: DOCUMENTATION on structures no longer signals an
error if no structure type of the right name exists. (reported by
* fixed bug: compiled calls to MAKE-INSTANCE where there is an
applicable non-standard primary or :AROUND method on
INITIALIZE-INSTANCE or SHARED-INITIALIZE and a non-keyword initarg
no longer cause unbound variable errors. (reported by Kevin Reid)
* fixed bug: metacircle resolution in cases where methods have slots
added before the slots from STANDARD-METHOD. (reported by Jean
* fixed bug: the Power PC assembly code for calling into lisp
sometimes computed its return address wrongly (depending on the
15th bit of the address, fixed at link time). This used to
manifest itself in a segmentation violation while building PCL.
(reported by Kevin Rosenberg, Eric Marsden, Lars Brinkhoff and
many others over the years)
* fixed bug: ROOM no longer reports silly numbers for stack usage if
the stack pointer (treated as a signed integer) is negative.
(thanks to Peter van Eynde)
