Well, Prof. Attardi was the original creator of ECL, but I have been 
maintaining it since year 2000 :-)

Sorry, I cannot help with this. The MSVC port is maintained by Michael

This page is out of date, as it refers to the old, user-level threading 
facility that EcoLisp had. Lisp multiprocessing is now implemented using 
the POSIX threads and should be easily ported to other platforms or 
native threads definitions. However, due simply to lack of time, I have 
not built a multiprocessing version of ECL for the last months and 
cannot assure that everything will work. Furthermore, besides myself, I 
know nobody that has used this facility, so the whole library lacked a 
lot of testing from the very beginning O:-)
