Dear Lisp hackers,

ASDF 2.27 was a major rewrite of ASDF, and everything since then
should be considered as candidate releases for ASDF 3:

ASDF 2.28 was released shortly after 2.27, without an announcement,
to fix an issue found by Stelian Ionescu using TEST-OP on some systems.

ASDF 2.29 is a stability release, with which I'm once again
inviting implementers to update the ASDF they distribute.

Since ASDF 2.27, ASDF 2.29 further brings:

  * deferred-warnings support for Allegro, CMUCL, SCL;
    fixes to the CCL support.

  * Upgrade fixes regarding fallback system versions;
    making it possible (via massive use of eval-when)
    to compile ASDF without loading it first.

  * Compatibility with private use of :D package nickname
    by not claiming it for package ASDF/DRIVER anymore.
    Also explicitly handle NIL in safe-file-write-date,
    in case the implementation doesn't issue a file-error in that case;
    make UTF-8 the default encoding for with-input-file.
    Be portable to #+(and sbcl (not sb-eval)).

  * Bugfixes to old bugs: inline-methods can now be unqualified (lp#485393),
    defsystem-depends-on accepts arbitrary specs, not just names (lp#1027521).
