I have opted to upload binaries for 1.1.6 on Windows to the experimental directory, since sb-concurrency was still failing when I did my final release build. If anyone is desperate enough to want an SBCL without that contrib, you can find it there. I do not plan on updating the sbcl home page.

Hi all,

In accordance with the weather here in London, I would like to declare a
freeze on development for release of sbcl-1.1.6 in the next week or so.
Test test test, report any breakage, and satisfy yourselves and everyone
else that everything is marvellous.  (Reports to the contrary
accompanied by tasteful, well-crafted patches are acceptable too.)

The test failures in sb-concurrency that I reported after 1.1.5 was released still appear to be present, although my more recent testing has shown that the failures are intermittent (frequent, but not 100% reproducible). I unfortunately don't have time to do any meaningful debugging on this before release; I'll be away from my Windows machine all of next week and won't be able to test anything, even if others contribute fixes.

I might be able to release a "good" build for Windows for 1.1.6 (i.e. one where the test suite claimed to pass), although I'm not sure we really want to unleash a potentially buggy sb-concurrency on the world.

Here is the build log, in case anyone is interested:
