    3839If you want to build ABCL, you have 3 options. The first option
    39 applies when you come from a lisp background. The second and thirds
     40applies when you come from a Lisp background. The second and thirds
    4041options are more appropriate when you come from Java development:

    42  I)  Bootstrap ABCL using a Common Lisp implementation
    43      Supported implementations for this process: SBCL, CMUCL, OpenMCL,
    44      Allegro CL, LispWorks or CLISP.

    110 A lot of (renewed) energy has been spent to make ABCL a compliant
    111 and practically useable Common Lisp implementation.  Because of this,
    112 ABCL 0.0.11 now fails only 47 out of 21702 tests in the ANSI CL test
    113 suite.  Next to that, the fail count of the Maxima test suite has been
    114 reduced from over 1400 in 0.0.10 to little more than 600 in 0.0.11.
