Hi,

I've just tagged, uploaded and released sbcl-1.0.33.  The news items for
this release are appended below.

With Best Wishes,

Christophe

changes in sbcl-1.0.33 relative to sbcl-1.0.32:
  * new port: support added for x86-64 NetBSD.  (thanks to Aymeric Vincent)
  * improvement: support O_LARGEFILE access to files larger than 2GB on
    x86-64/linux.  (thanks to Daniel Janus; launchpad bug #453080)
  * new feature: SB-INTROSPECT:WHO-SPECIALIZES-DIRECTLY to get a list of
    definitions for methods specializing on the passed class itself. 
  * new feature: SB-INTROSPECT:WHO-SPECIALIZES-GENERALLY to get a list of
    definitions for methods specializing on the passed class itself, or on
    subclasses of it.
  * new build flag: :sb-xref-for-internals; SBCL will collect xref
information
    about itself during the build (e.g. for M-? in Slime), if this flag is
    enabled in customize-target-features.lisp. This will increase the core
    size by about 5-6mb, though, so it's mostly interesting to SBCL
    developers.
  * new feature: various GENCGC tuning parameters have been experimentally
    documented and exported from SB-EXT. See documentation for details.
  * fixes and improvements related to Unicode and external formats:
    ** the Unicode character database has been upgraded to the
       Unicode 5.2 standard, giving names and properties to a number of new
       characters, and providing a few extra characters with case
       transformations.
    ** improvement: restarts for providing replacement input/output on
coding
       errors for fd-stream external formats.
    ** improvement: where : is a keyword corresponding to an
       external format the system supports, it is now possible to specify
       (: :replacement ) as an external format which
will
       automatically substitute  on encoding or decoding errors
for
       streams and for STRING-TO-OCTETS and its inverse.  (launchpad bug
       #317072)
    ** improvement: the file streams underlying the standard streams (such
as
       *STANDARD-INPUT*, *TERMINAL-IO*) are opened with an external format 
       which uses the replacement mechanism to handle encoding errors,
       preventing various infinite error chains and unrecoverable I/O
       confusion.
    ** minor incompatible change: the utf-8 external format now correctly
       refuses to encode Lisp characters in the surrogate range (char-codes
       between #xd800 and #xdfff).
    ** fix a typo preventing conversion of strings into octet vectors
       in the latin-2 encoding.  (reported by Attila Lendvai; launchpad bug
       #471689)
    ** fix a bug in the octet multibyte handling of decoding errors and the
       USE-VALUE restart.  (launchpad bug #314939)
    ** fix the bug underlying the expected failure in the FORCE-END-OF-FILE
       restart on fd-stream decoding errors.
    ** fix a bug in the ATTEMPT-RESYNC fd-stream decoding restart when the
       error is near the end of file.
    ** fix a double-error case in unibyte octet conversions, when the first
       use of USE-VALUE is ignored.
    ** fix bugs in handling of undefined code points in unibyte encodings.
    ** fix LISTEN (and consequent hangs in READ-CHAR-NO-HANG) on bivalent
       streams after an UNREAD-CHAR.
  * enhancement: SB-INTROSPECT:ALLOCATION-INFORMATION also reports if the
    object is allocated in a boxed region of dynamic space.
  * enhancement: SB-POSIX:FORK now signals an error if an attempt to
    fork with multiple Lisp threads running is made, instead of going
    ahead with unpredictable consequences. (reported by Leslie Polzer)
  * bug fix: uses of slot accessors on specialized method parameters within
    the bodies of SLOT-VALUE-USING-CLASS methods no longer triggers a type
    error while finalizing the class.  This fix may cause classes with slot
    accessors to be finalized later than previously.  (reported by Lars
Rune
    Nøstdal; launchpad bug #473699)
  * bug fix: restore buildability on the MIPS platform.  (regression from
    1.0.30.38, reported by Samium Gromoff)
  * bug fix: inspecting closures is less likely to fail with a type error.
  * bug fix: no timer starvation when setting the system clock back.
    (launchpad bug #460283)
  * bug fix: WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX now binds *PRINT-PPRINT-DISPATCH* to
the
    standard pprint dispatch table as specified by CLHS.
  * bug fix: give CLISP a hint about a type declaration to enable it to
build
    the cross-compiler without warnings.  (thanks to Josh Elasser;
launchpad
    bug #396597)
  * bug fix: correctly dump literal objects in defaulting forms of
arglists.
    (reported by Attila Lendvai; launchpad bug #310132)
  * bug fix: distinguish in type specifiers between arrays that might be
    complex and arrays that are definitely complex.  (launchpad bug
#309129)
  * bug fix: SUBTYPEP knows that the SYMBOL type is not SUBTYPEP the
KEYWORD
    type.  (reported by Levente Mészáros; launchpad bug #485972)
  * bug fix: setting the value of a symbol-macro within a method in the
    presence of type declarations works properly again.  (reported by Iban
    Hatchondo; launchpad bug #485019)
