     6   * fast compilation speed
     7   * native OS threads
     8   * precise, generational, compacting garbage collector

    62 The contents of this site are managed by [http://trac.edgewall.org/ Trac], which describes itself as "a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    63 '''software projects''', whose goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues,
    64 enhancements and overall progress."  Towards this end, Trac provides a bug tracking system, an interface to Clozure CL's
    65 subversion repository, and a unifying Wiki framework.
    66 
    67 As it's configured, this Trac instance allows anyone to view Wiki pages, to search for and view "tickets" (bug reports and feature requests), and to browse the OpenMCL source repository.  [http://trac.clozure.com/openmcl/register Registered] users can add and modify Wiki pages and tickets.  (Requiring that users register before modifying content here is intended to discourage spam.)

    70 modify the contents of any Wiki page simply by using your
    71 web browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom
