	   Recent questions concerning clim for MCL kicked the
	   following question in my mind: (I admit this is
	   a good candidate for FAQ...)

	   What is the status of CLIM 2.0 for MCL???

       Sounds like an understaffed and unsupported effort by Bill York and Denis
       Doughty with delivery date impossible to determine.

    This is essentially correct.  I would like to emphasize that progress
    is being made, however.  Big chunks of the "core" CLIM 2 software is
    running under MCL, and we are currently working on the adaptive
    gadgets and filling in the other holes.  I realize that the slow rate
    of progress is frustrating (no less to us, I assure you) but it is the
    best we can do.

We sure wish some company, e.g. Apple, would wake up and give your effort the
big boost that it merits, instead of dogmatically believing that Dillon will
come from nowhere to instantly obsolesce Lisp and CLIM.
