Sbcl-0.7.5 has been released.
Right now only sources are available. Miles Egan has expressed an
interest in setting up binary files for releases, so hopefully soon
binaries will become available too. (But at the moment we're still in
the process of working out SourceForge permissions and so forth.)
from the NEWS file in the distribution:
changes in sbcl-0.7.5 relative to sbcl-0.7.4:
* SBCL now builds with OpenMCL (version 0.12) as the
cross-compilation host; also, more progress has been made toward
bootstrapping under CLISP.
* SBCL now runs on the Tru64 (aka OSF/1) operating system on the
* bug 158 fixed: The compiler can now deal with integer loop
increments different from 1; fixing this turned out also to fix
* bug 169 fixed: no more bogus warnings about using lexical bindings
despite the presence of perfectly good SPECIAL declarations (thanks
to David Lichteblau)
* bug 175 fixed: CHANGE-CLASS is now more ANSI-conforming,
accepting initargs. (thanks to Espen Johnsen and Pierre Mai)
* bug 179 fixed: DIRECTORY can now deal with filenames with pattern
characters in them.
* bug 180 fixed: Method combination specifications no longer ignore
the :MOST-SPECIFIC-LAST option. (thanks to Pierre Mai)
* bug fix: Structure type predicate functions now check their argument
count as they should.
* bug fix: Classes with :METACLASS STRUCTURE-CLASS now print
correctly. (thanks to Pierre Mai)
* minor incompatible change: The --noprogrammer option is deprecated
in favor of the new --disable-debugger option, which is very similar.
(The major difference is that it takes effect at a slightly different
time at startup, causing handling of errors in --sysinit and
--userinit files will be affected differently.) The
SB-EXT:DISABLE-DEBUGGER and SB-EXT:ENABLE-DEBUGGER functions have
been added to allow this functionality to be controlled from ordinary
Lisp code. (ENABLE-DEBUGGER should help people like the Debian
maintainers, who might want to run non-interactive scripts to
build SBCL cores which will later be used interactively.)
* minor incompatible change: The LOAD function no longer, when given
a wild pathname to load, loads all files matching that pathname.
Instead, an error of type FILE-ERROR is signalled.
