New CLSQL version

With the orphaning of UncommonSQL, Marcus Pearce did a fine port of the CommonSQL API compatibility layer to CLSQL. I've integrated his port into CLSQL and added compatibility with AllegroCL's metaobject protocol. The original CLSQL without the new features is now exported by the CLSQL-CLASSIC system which continues to be supported.

Analog Retro

For the last few months I've been having fun working with analog circuits. This led me back into radio. I've taken a new amateur radio test. My expired callsign was WD5ERB from back in 1977. The new callsign is AD5QO.

ODBC Support

Yesterday I finished adding ODBC support to CLSQL. That raises the number of CLSQL database backends to 6.

CMUCL large files to the rescue

I'm working on importing a new version of the UMLS for UMLisp. UMLS continues to grow and now one of my intermediate files is larger than 2GB.

Allegro and SBCL, my two primary platforms, don't support large files on my Linux AMD64 box. But, Raymond Toy gave me the tip that CMUCL does support Large (greater than 2GB) files. He's right - CMUCL came to my rescue and allowed me to import the new UMLS version.
