Thanks for your hard work in getting a new release out!

I always have a hard time remembering how to clone asdf and how to run the tests, but I think I figured it out and all the tests ran fine for me using the latest snapshot of cmucl.

I'll be updating cmucl to the new version soon.  Just in time for the next snapshot.

Today we release ASDF 3.3.7, "Robbie Burns Night 2024 (belated)," the seventh bugfix release for the 3.3 release series. I had hoped that this would be the last bugfix release, but "the best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men Gang aft agley."

We urge implementations that are currently bundling previous versions of ASDF to upgrade to 3.3.7 at their earliest convenience. This is particularly true for Allegro and SBCL. A primary purpose of the 3.3.7 was to give compatibility with Allegro 11.0. There is also a fix for multi-threaded vs. single-threaded FASLs that should be very useful to SBCL users.

As maintainer, my primary role continues to be coordination and some limited quality control. Many contributors and bug-reporters have made this possible and the Common Lisp community owes them a vote of thanks. Their names are listed on the Changelog, appended below. The Changelog is in Debian format, for historical reasons: we used to release a Debian package, but have lost that capability (if you would like to volunteer to do this, please contact me directly or on the ASDF-devel mailing list).

Hope springs eternal that the next release will be 3.4, that will introduce new functionality but, as its numbering suggests, will be backward compatible.

  • Fix bugs in UIOP:WITH-TEMPORARY-FILE, #142.
  • Fix bug in (SETF UIOP:GETENV). H/T to Michaël Le Barbier, #146.
  • Remember whether or not an SBCL build is single- or multi-threaded,
    since the two give incompatible FASLs. H/T to Philipp Marek, #143.
  • Remove unused UIOP:WITH-OPTIMIZATION-SETTINGS. This macro was never
    used, nor was its coding finished and debugged. H/T Yehouda
    Harpaz. #148.
  • Fix a number of issues with Allegro 11 compatibility. Many thanks to
    Duane Rettig and Kevin Layer. #152, #141
  • Fix DEFPACKAGE code-walker for PACKAGE-INFERRED-SYSTEMs. Thanks to
    Alexander Fedorov. #147.
  • Thanks to Alexander Fedorov for assistance with the CI infrastructure.
  • Thanks to François-René Rideau for assistance in understanding past
    versions of ASDF and with miscellaneous repairs.
