 News: what happened in 2001

2001-12-20
Experimental binaries, similar to the upcoming 18d release, are available in the binaries directory of the download sites.
2001-12-10
Experimental binaries for OpenBSD/x86 have been uploaded to the experimental directory of the download sites.
2001-08-15
A number of mirror sites have been make available.
2001-07-26
The primary CMUCL server was taken offline unexpectedly, due to a move of the hosting company. The mailing lists are still running, but CVS and FTP/HTTP downloads are currently unavailable.
2001-07-16
Added pointer to PGPLOT-CL to the Ports page.
2001-07-05
Improvements to the way subsystems are loaded: the modules: pathname is initialized correctly, to make things like (require :clx-library) work. Also, the features :NO-CLX, :NO-HEMLOCK which are used to control subsystem compilation during the build phase are no longer present in the final cores.
2001-06-28
Various ANSI compliance fixes: :CLTL2, :DRAFT-ANSI-CL, :X3J13 features removed. Changes in the precedence lists of certain conditions: for example NO-APPLICABLE-METHOD now subclasses TYPE-ERROR.
2001-06-19
Beginnings of a FAQ.
2001-06-17
A new version of the EncyCMUCLopedia (compendium of documents related to CMUCL) has been released.
2001-06-12
New web pages go live.
2001-06-11
Bugfix for printing of bit vectors (printer was incorrectly respecting radix and base control variables). Also bugfixes to pretty printing of vectors.
2001-06-03
Changes to DEFMACRO processing, to improve ANSI compliance. It now has compile-time effect only when at top-level.
2001-05-13
improvements to disassembly listings on x86 and SPARC.
o Sparc v9 instructions are longer so make the opcode column wider.
o Allow printing of integer registers to use the Sparc register names
  instead of the Lisp names.
o Add support for printing various notes during disassembly:
  o Assembler routines, foreign functions, and foreign constants
  o The value of constants in the code header
  o References to static symbols
  o Notes about pseudo-atomic stuff
  o Some hints on header-word types
2001-05-03
Linux RPMs available at rpmfind.net.
2001-04-25
Changes to PCL (the CLOS implementation included with CMUCL) to remove code for other Common Lisp implementations.
2001-04-12
CMUCL is reported to segfault on linux 2.2 with the bigmem patch and the CONFIG_2GB option (certain distributions ship kernels with these patches applied). It works ok using the option CONFIG_1GB.
2001-03-20
Changes to PROCLAIM and DECLAIM to be more ANSI-compliant. PROCLAIM no longer has a compile-time effect, so many old uses of this should use DECLAIM instead.
2001-03-15
The directory src/bootfiles/18c contains a number of files required to bootstrap compilation from the 18c release. See the README in that directory for usage.
2001-02-10
A PowerPC backend has been contributed by Gary Byers. Work is underway to revive the code.
2001-01-08
A port of the XML parser from Franz Inc is available from ports/xmlutils. The port does not support Unicode, since CMUCL has no support for extended character sets.
