Hi, Gary Byers

What about the commercial MCL? Is there any news?

Several months ago some one on MCL mailing list said MCL 5.2 will be  
open-sourced, but things didn't change since then. I'm not a MCL user  
(using Clozure CL 1.2 now) but thought that the MCL CLIM & IDE maybe  
still useful for Lisp programmers on Mac if these components can be  
ported to Clozure CL... What's your opinion?

Regards,

Chun Tian (binghe)
