[Openmcl-devel] OpenMCL 1.0-rc1

There are now "full" (sources+binaries+interfaces) 1.0-rc1-050924
archives available in the testing directory on clozure.com
(<ftp://clozure.com/pub/testing/>), as well as archives containing
heap images for 32-bit Darwin, 64-bit Darwin, and 32-bit Linux.

The "full" Darwin archive contains 32-bit and 64-bit kernels and
heap images; the 64-bit image is fairly large and might be of limited
interest, so we might want to think about other ways of packaging
things.

These are supposed to be "release candidates", i.e., the only changes
between now and the final 1.0 release should be in response to any
critical (showstopper) bugs.  The CVS metainformation in the archives
is from the bleeding-edge tree; as 1.0 nears release, the code should
all migrate into the main tree, and the "ccl" directory installed from
these archives should probably be replaced with the official release
when it becomes available.

There's some updated documentation and some 1.0 release notes online
at <http://newsite.openmcl.clozure.com>; both the documentation and
release notes need further work.

I realize that it may be something of a PITA to download and install
these largish archives (and to repeat the process if there are other
"release candidates" between now and the final 1.0), but it'd be
helpful if anyone who's able to do so could do so.
