A new version of Parenscript has been released. This release comes
with partial support for LOOP and DESTRUCTURING-BIND Common Lisp
facilities (thanks to the efforts of Daniel Gackle and Scott Bell),
much faster compilation speed, many bugfixes, real and efficient
lexical scoping for all special forms that introduce bindings, as well
as the ability to direct compiler output directly to a stream. One
thing that has been removed is support for the dot symbol notation (ie
- 'object.property' would be special cased into (slot-value object
'property) by the compiler) - this has been done to allow Parenscript
code to be a useful target for code walkers designed for regular Lisp
code. The consequence is that any code that relies on the dot notation
will need to be changed to use non-opaque object slot access.
