Testing ASDF with ABCL under Windows (was Re: [asdf-devel] Releasing asdf 3.1.1 ?)

I have started cl-test-grid tests with the latest ASDF (git revision 38337a5)
After SBCL and CCL tests complete we can run tests on the previous ASDF
and compare results.

The question: what is the previous stable and tested ASDF version?

Best regards,
