APDA shipping MCL 2.0!

As you may have heard, APDA (Apple's distribution channel for developer tools)
is now shipping MCL v. 2.0 and the MCL v. 2.0 Update.
Earlier this week APDA shipped copies of the MCL v. 2.0 Update to all customers
who purchased MCL 2.0b1 or the MCL 2.0b1 Update.  Update packages sent to U.S.
addresses were sent via UPS; please allow 7-10 working days for delivery.  If
you expect to receive an update and haven't received it by the first week of
August, contact APDA to verify that they sent you a copy at the correct address
(see the end of this message for APDA's addresses and phone numbers).
Here is the description of MCL 2.0 which will appear in the August 1992 APDA
Macintosh Common Lisp v. 2.0
Apple Computer, Inc.
Macintosh Common Lisp v. 2.0 is an object-oriented dynamic language (OODL)
fully integrated with the Macintosh. It includes an incremental Common Lisp
compiler, a rich set of Lisp programming tools, and an extensive library of
CLOS objects including Macintosh user interface objects. With Macintosh Common
Lisp (MCL), creating complex interactive applications is easy. That makes MCL
especially well-suited for  rapid prototyping, custom development for business
and education, scientific and engineering applications, and academic research.
Features include:
-  A fast, incremental Common Lisp compiler, which compiles and executes
individual expressions almost instantly and generates efficient native 680x0
-  Support for the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS), allowing you to write
portable object-oriented code that can easily be moved between the Macintosh
platform and other computer platforms.
-  Industry standard implementation of Common Lisp and CLOS as defined in Commo
Lisp: The Language, Second Edition.
-  A sophisticated object-oriented error condition system which greatly enhance
program robustness and ease of debugging.
-  A class library of high-level CLOS objects implementing Macintosh user
interface features and as well as low-level interfaces to all System 7
-  Smart programmable tools for prototyping, programming, and debugging such as
an interface toolkit, a source code stepper, a symbolic debugger, a dynamic
object inspector, and a stack backtrace.
-   A fully programmable syntax-aware editor which can instantly access source
code and documentation for any function, variable, or macro.
-   Automatic memory management which is handled incrementally by an ephemeral
garbage collector.
-  A snapshot facility, which lets you save complete Lisp environments for quic
-  A foreign function interface, allowing Lisp programs to call functions
created with MPW languages such as C, Pascal, and Assembler.
-  Full Lisp source code for many examples and utilities.
-  Supports creation of standalone, double-clickable Macintosh application usin
less than 2 MB of disk space which can be run with 2MB or more of memory.
Licensing Notes:
-  You may ship any quantity of applications created with Macintosh Common Lisp
after submitting to Apple the object code distribution license included in the
package with a one-time fee of $100 (or $10 for non-commercial use).
-  Site licensing is available for this product.
