I created a patch (and a full archive) for drakma 0.6.0. I did initial
testing with usocket 0.3.2 and sbcl on linux 2.6. I'll put up a text
file at the same location to log the already-tested combinations. The
archive is at http://hix.nu/drakma/ (which is behind my dsl line at

Version 0.3.2 for usocket is required: I added the
close-the-stream-means-closing-the-socket API guarantee in that

Any problems with usocket can be reported directly to me, here (for
reference for other testers), or at usocket-devel at common-lisp.net.

I'll be testing a number of other combinations too, but I was out of

Thanks in advance for any help provided!
