[Gcl-devel] ASDF 2.016 released

Dear GCL developers,

below is the announcement for ASDF 2.016, as posted on the
asdf-announce mailing-list, also accessible via its gmane mirror
gmane.lisp.asdf.announce. Please have me take your list off my
forwarding aliases if unappropriate.

Can you upgrade GCL 2.7.0 to ship with the latest ASDF?
There is a lot of breakage due to conditions notably,
but when I manage to not raise them, it seems of works.

I recommend that you have (require :asdf) working as well as (require "asdf").

I'm told that the 2.6 branch is more active than 2.7 —
if so can you make it work with ASDF?
In addition to proper conditions, (setf foo) functions are notably lacking,
and so are () destructuring arguments in defmacro.
There could possibly be further issues once these are solved.

Also, I tried to checkout your latest CVS from
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gcl co gcl
but it miserably fails to compile on a recent Debian linux amd64.
I reported that issue on the list previously, to no avail.
Can you fix that?

Dear CL users,

I released ASDF 2.015.12 as 2.016.

Please test, and upon success
update your implementations and lisp distributions.

Since 2.015, we have the following improvements:

 * Portability: Fixes for ECL, RMCL. Tweaks for CLISP.
   Improvements to Windows configuration, notably for LispWorks.

 * Fix to load-source-op (broken in 2.014.13 - oops).

 * Avoid infinite loops in defsystem in cases of bad interference
   between quicklisp and your source-registry.

 * Small fixes regarding upgrade, compile-file* :output-file.

 * Make defsystem-depends-on actually useful by allowing a system
   thus depended on to define the class of the system depending on it.
   The XCVB bridge notably relies on this feature.

 * Some documentation updates.
   Notably, for the sake of CLISP, (require "asdf") is the new canonical way
   to load ASDF, instead of (require :asdf). Sigh.

 * Better tests, notably wrt hot upgrade.

Happy hacking!
