Quicklisp beta release notes
The 2010-10-09 Quicklisp beta has a number of known issues:
- Most CL implementations check multiple init files. ql:add-to-init-file only adds to one, and it might not always be the right one.
- Emacs and CL might disagree on the meaning of ~ on Windows, making quicklisp-slime-helper's instructions incorrect
- Upgrading from ASDF 2.00x to 2.010 might trigger an error related to "Package ASDF-UTILITIES not found". Removing old FASLs, especially SLIME fasls in ~/.slime/fasl/, should fix the problem.
- Debian's Common Lisp Controller installs an ASDF configuration file that isn't compatible with Quicklisp's ASDF 2.010. It triggers an error: Not an absolute pathname #P"~/.clc/systems/". It is tracked as Debian bug #599903; one short-term fix is to remove /etc/common-lisp/source-registry.conf.d/02-common-lisp-controller-userdir.conf. You can also remove and purge the cl-asdf package.
If you encounter any problems, please use the discussion group to report them.
