After upgrading my system to Leopard this weekend, I decided to refresh Ready Lisp as well. It now contains both 32-bit and 64-bit builds of SBCL (which has been bumped to 1.0.11), so if you have a Core 2 Duo machine, you’ll be running Lisp at full 64-bit! Alas, Emacs itself cannot support 64-bit as a Carbon app, because there are no 64-bit Carbon libraries. SLIME has also been updated, to CVS latest as of today. Aquamacs is still the same version at 1.2a.
I did spend several hours trying to build a fully Universal package that would run on PowerPC as well (I have a PowerBook G4 in addition to this MacBook Pro), but it seems Leopard has broken the PowerPC port of SBCL. Some of the core OS structures have changed, such as
Ready Lisp is now being versioned according to the SBCL version it contains, which makes today’s release ReadyLisp-1.0.11-10.5-x86.dmg. The older version, which still works on 10.4, can be downloaded here.
NOTE: The recent loading bug for Leopard users has been fixed. Please re-download. Also, it still does not work on OS X 10.4 (Tiger) at the moment. I will have to create a separate build of SBCL for that version this weekend.
