We did quite well for last year.

Yesterday, after meeting Oxford physics people during the day to discuss moving forward on our projects, I met Dan for dinner, and the 2003 SBCL (UK branch) AGM. Two is quorate, yes.

So, let's see:

  • Native threads: check.
  • Better, faster, more integrated CLOS: check.
  • GenGC on non-x86: partly done.
  • Contributed modules infrastructure: check.
  • More ports: check.
  • Linkage Tables: partly done.
  • State of the Implementation: oops.
  • XREF: sort of.
which isn't a bad strike rate considering the various other things that happen in people's lives. As for this year, well, 64-bit will probably happen; some form of Unicode support will probably happen; I will write up some of the stuff that's important; and I hope that we'll release that dream of software writers: version 1.0.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
