Dear CL users,

I released ASDF 2.015.12 as 2.016.

Please test, and upon success
update your implementations and lisp distributions.

Since 2.015, we have the following improvements:

  * Portability: Fixes for ECL, RMCL. Tweaks for CLISP.
    Improvements to Windows configuration, notably for LispWorks.

  * Fix to load-source-op (broken in 2.014.13 - oops).

  * Avoid infinite loops in defsystem in cases of bad interference
    between quicklisp and your source-registry.

  * Small fixes regarding upgrade, compile-file* :output-file.

  * Make defsystem-depends-on actually useful by allowing a system
    thus depended on to define the class of the system depending on it.
    The XCVB bridge notably relies on this feature.

  * Some documentation updates.
    Notably, for the sake of CLISP, (require "asdf") is the new canonical way
    to load ASDF, instead of (require :asdf). Sigh.

  * Better tests, notably wrt hot upgrade.

Happy hacking!
