    96         ABCL 0.12.0 fails 44 out of 21702 tests in the GCL ANSI test suite
    97         in interpreted mode. In compiled mode ABCL 0.12.0 fails 48 tests,
    98         coming from ca 65 in the last release.
    99         Most notable recent fixes relate to special variables handling
    100         and making sure the compiler uses the correct environments with, e.g.,
    101         LET/LET* and FLET/LABELS.
     111        ABCL 0.13.0 fails 44 out of 21702 tests in the ANSI test suite
     112        in interpreted mode. In compiled mode ABCL 0.13.0 also fails 44 tests,
     113        coming from ca 48 in the last release.
     114        Most notable recent fixes relate to issues found through running
     115        the Maxima test suite. 0.13.0 is now able to run the test suite
     116        without crashing. Before, some testcases could not be completed,
     117        causing Java side errors. This is the issue resolved. The Maxima
     118        tests don't run without errors, still.

     37"I used ABCL (older, v. 0.0.10) as the interpreter
     38underlying an object for a music/media graphical programming
     39environment called <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5">Max/MSP</a>.
     40ABCL allowed me to embed an entire LISP interpreter inside the
     41Max/MSP package, and it has worked extremely well.  Max/MSP
     42is designed primarily for real-time/interactive applications,
     43used a lot by computer music academics, DJs/VJs, bizarro jazz
     44performers, audio plugin developers, etc.  With the embedded
     45abcl object, I am able to schedule LISP functions and work
     46interactively with complex processes -- <b>the abcl interpreter
     47has been rock-solid!</b> <br />
     48<br />
     49The source for the object is here (scroll down to the bottom of
     50the page):<br />

     53<br />
     54And I also used it extensively in a large application built with
     55Max/MSP... it's an interactive 'book' where the generative music
     56follows what a reader is reading and creates an appropriate sound
     57setting for the text:<br />

     61The music performance model underlying the shawm-like melodies
     62is all coded using abcl.<br />
     63<br />
     64So to all of you who have contributed (and still contribute!) to
     65the development of this terrific package, a big THANK YOU!!!"

     70<dd>I'm currently integrating ABCL in a small, unreleased open source
     71project. It's a sort of graphical object browser for Java (but its GUI
     72sucks badly for now...). It can be run locally or as a client-server
     73application. I'm adding scripting support so you can access some
     74functionality from Lisp (or in principle any other Java Scripting API
     75compatible script engine, though I'm focusing on ABCL).
