    111147        Even though a lot of energy is spent resolving issues, you may
    112148        well encounter bugs. A number of people have testified to the
    113         quality of ABCL being good enough for their needs though. See
    114         the testimonials page.
    115         <br /><br />
    116         ABCL 0.14.1 fails 43 out of 21702 tests in the ANSI test suite
    117         in interpreted mode. In compiled mode ABCL 0.14.1 also fails 43 tests,
    118         coming from ca 44 in the last release.
    119         Most notable recent fixes relate to issues found through running
    120         the Maxima test suite. 0.13.0 is now able to run the test suite
    121         without only ca 75 failing tests, coming from ca 1400 failures
    122         october 2008 (6 months ago).

     150        the testimonials page for their own words.

     152        ABCL 0.15.0 fails 34 out of 21702 tests in the ANSI test suite
     153        in interpreted and compiled modes, coming from ca 44 in the last
     154        release.
     155        As a measure of 'improvement achieved', the development team refers
     156        to the number of failing tests in the Maxima test suite too.
     157        ABCL 0.15.0 is able to run the test suite with 'only' ca 75 failing
     158        tests, coming from ca 1400 failures around october 2008.
