Extensible CAS and Timeouts All Over The Place

More IndieGoGo funded goodies have landed in the SBCL repository:

  • COMPARE-AND-SWAP is now user-extensible, and also supports SLOT-VALUE STANDARD-INSTANCE-ACCESS, and FUNCALLABLE-STANDARD-INSTANCE-ACCESS out of the box.
  • All blocking functions in the threading API and the SB-CONCURRENCY contrib support timeouts and deadlines.

More to come...
