A new version of the Clozure CL Macintosh IDE is now available for  
download at
ftp://clozure.com/pub/testing/ClozureCL2007-10-28.dmg

This disk image includes an Intel-64 version as well as a PowerPC  
version.  The
Intel-64 version requires Leopard.  The PowerPC version runs on  
Tiger.  (The PPC
version should also run on Leopard, but I haven't tested it there  
because I don't
have Leopard installed on a PPC machine.)

The readme file includes pointers to a couple of simple examples that  
use Cocoa
as well as a higher-level window toolkit called EasyGUI.

Similar caveats apply to this release as did to the release we did  
about a week
ago for PPC/Tiger machines:

(a) we are still figuring out how best to package this up for   
distribution. So, for
example, the sources aren't included in this package (they have to be  
downloaded
separately), etc.
(b) it still has bugs and it is still missing features.

Even with these caveats, we think this is still a useful IDE, even if  
only to give you
a sense of the direction that Clozure is going with Clozure CL.   
Please let us know
what you think.

For those who want to live on the bleeding edge, you can build the  
Clozure CL
Macintosh IDE by

1. Downloading and installing the latest OpenMCL snapshot from  
openmcl.clozure.com.
(Note that this version is from July).
2. Updating to the latest sources via CVS or SVN.
3. Rebuilding everything by starting up OpenMCL and calling (REBUILD- 
CCL :FULL T)
4. Quitting and restarting OpenMCL
5. Call (REQUIRE 'COCOA-APPLICATION)

Oh, for step 3 to work you need to have xcode installed.  As I said,  
we'll get documentation
for this out there, and package up a new snapshot as well some time  
soon.
