GCL 2.6.12 is released

Item posted by Camm Maguire <camm> on Tue 28 Oct 2014 02:49:17 PM UTC.

Greetings! The GCL team is happy to announce the release of version
2.6.12, the latest achievement in the 'stable' (as opposed to
'development') series. Please see http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl for
downloading information.

This release was largely motivated to accelerate closure construction
and compiler hash table performance for ACL2(h). Along the way,
support was added for ACL2 static-consing, making GCL at present one
of two lisps offering this optimization for very large and heavy jobs.
This release also features a TAGS target in make, a variety of
compiler speed improvements, an overhaul and standardization of the
error, conditions, and restart systems, protection of system and fork
from SIGPROF, and getc/putc from SIGINT, faster l2 list functions and
nani/address, proper handling of missing objdump and generic TMP
environment variables, processing of mismatched fast-link calls slowly
without error, ppc64le and aarch64 fixes, support for the
si::link-list fast-linking diagnostic, more robust segfault
trapping, and full pathname fixes to the unradomize/re-exec
mechanism.
