serve as a public answer for your question.

There is no problem in the new version that was not in the previous
ones. However, I did not want to make a release until I solved a big
issue. Namely, the lisp->C translator produced wrong code when using
many nested FLET/LABELs. I finished these fixes, but then again another
bug has popped up that makes the ANSI test suit crash in my computer
(*), and I had to delay testing until I solved this.
Furthermore, somehow, ECL no longer compiles under Mac OSX because the
libtool scripts are broken -- even though I never touched them :-/...
something must have changed between OSX releases ---. And from other
messages, it seems that some 64-bit architectures might have problems
(Solaries does not, so I will have to check on Alpha).
I would like to get this solved before Halloween (a new release, I mean)
(*) I think I found the bug, related to FORMAT not liking bignum
integers as arguments, so that
(FORMAT t "~10,-10000000000000000r" "12345")
