The Corman Lisp 3.1 is about to be released.

The release notes with the changes are here. The list is pretty huge.

I believe it is the first community release which is stable enough to be considered for any real use. It lacks some important features which make it less useful than it could be, e.g. support for modern ASDF and support for modern thread synchronisation primitives available starting from Windows Vista and Windows 7. These issues are to be addressed in the next releases.

If everything goes as planned, the release should happen in the course of the following few weeks. If you are interested, you can get the release candidate installer in the project's download section. Hopefully, it should be almost identical to the planned release. Any feedback is welcome.

Thanks to everyone who helped to make it happen!

Note to the active contributors:

I have created the corman-3_1 git branch which is going to be a maintenance branch for 3.1 release series. If you want to get some important changes into the following release, please commit them into master branch and use git cherry-pick to copy them into corman-3_1.

This is amazing news! You are bringing the implementation back from the land of the dead.

Lowering the bar of entry to the empowering world of Common Lisp for users of the dominant desktop/laptop Operating System, by bringing them a familiar Windows environment for free, is a great gift!

Is it possible to release the binaries in a .zip version without a MSI installer?
