Clozure CL’s default prompt is “? “. You can customize this by setting ccl:*listener-prompt-format* to a format control of your choice.
Note that a format control “string” can be a function. Here’s an example that makes the prompt contain the current package name.
(defun prompt-formatter (stream break-level)
(princ (package-name *package*) stream)
(if (plusp break-level)
(format stream " ~d > " break-level)
(write-string "> " stream)))
To start using this, do
(setq ccl:*listener-prompt-format* #'prompt-formatter)
Clozure CL 1.11 is now available. Please see http://ccl.clozure.com/download.html for instructions on how to get it.
A pre-release version of Clozure CL 1.11 is now available for testing.
Please use Subversion to get a copy. For example, to get the 1.11 pre-release for Linux/x86, you would type (where the $ is the shell prompt)
$ svn co http://svn.clozure.com/publicsvn/openmcl/release/1.11/linuxx86/ccl
To get a version for a different platform, change the linuxx86 to one of darwinx86, freebsdx86, solarisx86, windows, or linuxarm.
They hardly merit a mention, but draft release notes are available for your perusal.
If you find problems, the best way to report them is to use http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/. After you register and sign in, click on “New Ticket” in the top navigator bar. If you don’t want to register, you can send mail to openmcl-devel or to me (email@example.com) privately.
Thank you for any testing that you are willing to do. After a short period of testing and bug fixing, I will build updated binaries and make the 1.11 release official.
Clozure CL 1.10 is now available. See http://ccl.clozure.com/download.html for instructions on how to get it.

A prerelease version of Clozure CL 1.7 is now available for testing.
Clozure CL is a free Common Lisp implementation that runs on a number of architectures and operating systems.
Please see the draft release notes for more information, including instructions on how to use Subversion to download a copy.
We would appreciate any bug reports or comments about the prerelease version. The best way to do that is via http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/. After you register, click on the “New Ticket” link in the navigation bar near the top of the page. The registration requirement is regrettable, but we get overwhelmed by spammers without it.
After a period of testing and bug fixing, we will build updated binaries and make the 1.7 release official.
Please remember that this is a prerelease. We hope you will test your software with it and report any problems you find. But please don’t use it to build software that you will distribute to unsuspecting users.
Thank you for helping to make Clozure CL better.
