Hi, Camm --

Congratulations on the GCL 2.6.6 release!  I'm interested in trying it out at
AMD, since you've put in that reader extension patch for foo::(bar foobar).

Unfortunately, the "Download" and "Get Latest Release" links appear to be
broken.  Any suggestions?

Thanks --

   Greetings!  The GCL team is happy to announce the release of version
   2.6.6, the latest achievement in the 'stable' (as opposed to
   'development') series.  Please see http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl for
   downloading information.

   This release is a minor modification of 2.6.5,
   incorporating the known bug fixes that had accumulated on the GCL
   errata page together with a few other fixes required for building axiom
   on Windows.  From the changelog:

   gcl (2.6.6-1) unstable; urgency=high

     * New upstream release
     * Allow .data section to be first in executable, as on solaris.  Also
       allow for new bfd section size semantics
     * Don't try to write map file when not using GNU ld.  Also allow
       compile-file to process pathnames with whitespace on Windows
     * Fix corner case fixnum arithmetic on 64bit machines
     * Rework gmp_wrappers semantics for older gcc
     * Explicitly mprotect loaded code pages PROT_EXEC on x86 Linux, as FC3
       now requires it.
     * lisp-implementation-version is GCL
     * Reader extension patch allowing for foo::(bar foobar) semantics
     * a shell script variable fix in "unixport/makefile" for MSYS
     * __MINGW32__ malloc initialization fix in "o/alloc.c"
     * Windows file/directory fixes in "o/unixfsys.c"
     * MinGW32 -march in configure - removes deprecation warnings
     * MinGW32 directory fix - "o/mingfile.c".
     * Allow for sysconf to determine clock granularity at compile time to
       fix time errors on the Itanium
     * Disable SGC on macosx until the sgc/save problem can be fixed.
     * Fix fixnum print bug on 64bit
     * Fix nil types in room report
     * 64bit fixes to fixnum_add and fixnum_sub
     * Fix Mac SGC/save bug, at least in part

   For the latest information, capabilities, and status of GCL stable,
   please see http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl/RELEASE-2.6.2.html.
