Quicklisp client update: bundling local-projects

The Quicklisp library bundle feature has been around for a while.  It creates a "bundle" of libraries from Quicklisp that can be used standalone, without loading or using Quicklisp at all.

Today, I published an updated client with a new bundle feature: if :include-local-projects is true, everything in Quicklisp's ql:*local-project-directories* is copied into the bundle and made available when the bundle is loaded.

To get this update, use (ql:update-client). The new code will be loaded when Lisp is restarted.

This work was commissioned by Rigetti Computing.

If you have Quicklisp feature needs, feel free to get in touch with me!

Thank you

Today (December 31) is the last day for the Quicklisp appreciation fundraiser. It has met and exceeded the matching fund goal by a wide margin. I am so thankful of all the support for this fundraiser, but also for the many kind words of appreciation, and for the "Quicklisp supporter club" donors, over the years. The positive feedback has made the work very satisfying.

Thank you, and best wishes for a happy 2017!

Removed projects: asn.1, cl-bacteria, cl-binary-file, cl-btree, cl-ntriples, cl-op, cl-swap-file, cl-wal, cl-web-crawler, doplus, esrap-peg.

There are more removed projects than usual this month. asn.1 was removed by request of the author. esrap-peg no longer builds - it may be back soon. All the others are victims of Google Code and SourceForge. Their code can no longer be easily checked out or updated, they don't affect other projects, and nobody has come forward to move them somewhere else and maintain them. If you miss any of those projects, feel free to take it over and let me know.

To get this month's update, use (ql:update-dist "quicklisp"). Enjoy!


Projects on the bubble

This month there are a number of projects that may be dropped from Quicklisp. They are hosted by Google Code and SourceForge, and the projects no longer check out properly. They are:
Each of these projects was downloaded between 4 and 6 times in the month of September. (No project in the entire dist was downloaded fewer than 4 times.)

I'm going to do some build-testing and see how widely this will impact other projects. If the damage is minimal, they will simply be dropped.

If you maintain (or want to maintain) one of these projects and want to see it remain in Quicklisp, please update its hosting and then get in touch.
