thanks for reverting 2.29: it had too many compatibility issues and
that was the correct thing to do before release.
Hopefully, 2.31 is more stable now, thanks to all the testing and bug fixing
that went into it, and can make it after the freeze. Since 2.29, there were:
* (regression fix) better compatibility with legacy systems that
modify the global syntax tables
* (regression fix) better compatibility with legacy systems with bogus
* (improvement) use utf-8 encoding by default, which causes many
systems to compile
correctly despite random locale while compiling.
* (improvement) automated avoidance of downgrade
* (improvement) support for precompiled-system.
* fixes for CCL, CMUCL, ECL
I used that latest feature to implement the promised delivery of contribs
as a single fasl that doesn't implicitly require asdf:
