To the CCL Community -

As many of you know, Gary Byers has been on a leave of absence from his
Clozure CL work to attend to his health.  I’m writing to let you know that,
unfortunately, this leave will be permanent.  Gary has resigned from his
position at Clozure and will no longer be the lead developer of Clozure CL.

Over the last 30+ years Gary has made a tremendous contribution to the
Common Lisp programming community, first through his work on Macintosh
Common Lisp, and then through the creation of CCL.  Gary has always been
ready to share his deep knowledge of the Common Lisp standard and the
issues attending its implementation. I don’t know anyone whose
understanding of the details of Common Lisp could match Gary’s. His many
contributions will be missed.

The work on CCL will continue, though.  In Gary’s absence, Matthew Emerson
will be stepping up as the primary maintainer of CCL.  Matthew is moving
CCL to GitHub, and he hopes that others will pitch in to continue the
development of this great software platform.  Clozure Associates will also
continue to support CCL, through direct contributions and through our
consulting work. I’ll be supporting those efforts, and I hope you’ll
consider supporting them as well.
