17 March 2007

Here are some recent developments from my perspective in the Lisp world:
  • David Lichteblau very kindly imported the most recent snapshot of my work on a Graphic-Forms backend for McCLIM, and has subsequently invested significant time and effort to help move it forward. As he notes in his announcement, there is still a lot of work to do, so if you (gentle reader) are at all interested in supporting a native Windows backend for McCLIM, please grab the latest code and experiment with it, offer patches, etc.
  • The combination of SLIME, SBCL, and Graphic-Forms apps seems to be working now, and that's great! One of the SLIME developers must have made the right changes, so my thanks to whoever that was.
  • CFFI has acquired support for the stdcall calling convention, and also lots of enhancements are being made to support character encodings. I am currently in the process of catching up with this.
Good stuff all around.
