Release 0.7.2 is now available through the usual web pages,
Incidentally, in case you don't follow the sbcl-devel list, there've
been some policy changes discussed there which might interest users
* I've started opening up CVS access. Currently Christophe Rhodes
and Dan Barlow are authorized to make CVS commits.
* Ordinarily, I'll try to make a new release late in each month,
after mostly freezing the system for testing on or around the
20th of the month.
Also incidentally, since I've griped about SourceForge's file release
system in the past, it would be only fair to acknowledge that they
seem to have improved it a lot recently. I still think it was a
questionable decision on their part to make it so complicated, and
it's still complicated. But now they seem to be documenting the
behavior well enough, and debugging the implementation enough, that
the real cost of the complexity is mostly on their end. On my end (as
a user of the system, i.e. a project administrator), it seems to be
down at the minor nuisance level, since this time doing a basic file
release just worked. In particular, most previously mysterious things
(like size limits on, and buggy behavior of, some mandatory uploads)
either worked better or were documented or both; the wait time for
seeing your new file release appear seems to have dropped to a minute
or less; and they had added several links to how-to documents which (I
gather from the titles) will help new users who don't need the
complexity figure out the ordinary path through the system.
