Instead, an error of type FILE-ERROR is signalled.
changes in sbcl-0.7.6 relative to sbcl-0.7.5:
+ * bug fix: Floating point exceptions are treated much more
+ consistently on the x86/Linux and PPC/Linux platforms.
* Array initialization with :INITIAL-ELEMENT is now much faster for
cases when the compiler cannot open code the array creation, but
does know what the UPGRADED-ARRAY-ELEMENT-TYPE will be. General

* bug fix: Internal error arguments for undefined functions are now
computed correctly on the PPC/Linux platform.
+ * bug fix: Bad &REST syntax is now checked correctly. (thanks to

* Support for the Solaris 9 operating environment has been included
(thanks to Daniel Merritt)
+ * A very ugly but hopefully complete draft of the missing FFI chapter
+ of the manual has been created by reformatting the corresponding
+ CMU CL manual chapter into (currently very ugly and incoherent)
+ DocBook and bringing it up to date for SBCL behavior. Thus, the
+ manual is now essentially complete, at least by my extreme
+ once-and-only-once standards, whereby it's acceptable to refer to
+ the doc strings of SB-EXT functions as the primary documentation.
+ * The fasl file version number has changed again, due to cleanup of
+ (user-invisible) bitrotted stuff. (E.g. *!INITIAL-FDEFN-OBJECTS*
+ is no longer a static symbol.)
