Ready Lisp version 20090130 now available

There is a new version of Ready Lisp for Mac OS X available. This version is based on SBCL 1.0.24 and Aquamacs Emacs 1.6, and requires OS X Leopard 10.5. The only changes in this version are upgrades of many of the dependent packages.

What is Ready Lisp? It’s a binding together of several popular Lisp packages for OS X, including: Aquamacs, SBCL and SLIME. Once downloaded, you’ll have a single application bundle which you can double-click – and find yourself in a fully configured Common Lisp REPL. It’s ideal for OS X users who want to try out Lisp with a minimum of hassle. The download is approximately 73 megabytes.
