Release notes for Clozure CL 1.10

It has been a long time (something like a year and a half) since the 1.9 release. This release includes the typical assortment of improvements and bug fixes. We'll also try to mention a few of the major changes here.

Supported Platforms

Clozure CL 1.10 runs on the following platforms:

  • Mac OS X 10.6 and later (x86, x86-64)
  • Linux (x86, x86-64, ppc32, ppc64, armv7l/armv6)
  • FreeBSD (x86, x86-64)
  • Solaris (x86, x86-64)
  • Microsoft Windows XP and later (x86, x86-64)

Please refer to http://ccl.clozure.com/download.html for instructions on how to obtain a copy of CCL.

New in Release 1.10

Specialized types for (complex single-float) and (complex double-float), and arrays of these types, were added.

The bundled ASDF is version 3.1.3.

CCL IDE: Window > Wrap Lines to Window is now available on a per-window basis. (setf gui::*default-line-break-mode* :word) [before opening a window] if you want line breaks to be between words rather than characters.

CCL IDE: Option-click in close box of a window closes all windows of that class.

Platform Notes

On the Macintosh, we now require at least Mac OS X 10.6.

The ARM port now expects to use the hard-float ABI, and the lisp kernel will complain that support for the soft-float ABI is deprecated. (A CCL kernel built for the soft-float ABI will "mostly" work (if soft-float libraries and toolchain support is available), but calls to C math library functions will likely work incorrectly.)
