Common Music in MCL 2.0

I have placed a new release of Common Music on ccrma-ftp.stanford.edu  
( and guido.zkm.de ( in the file  
pub/cm.tar.Z. Common Music is a public domain music composition  
language implemented in Common Lisp and CLOS that outputs music  
(directly or through scorefiles) to a variety of synthesis packages,  
such as the Music Kit, Common Lisp Music, MIDI, CSound, etc.

The main new pieces of functionality are a composition editor  
(currently non graphic) called Stella that supports both algorithmic  
and editorial styles of composition, and a full port of Common Music  
to the Macintosh under Macintosh Common Lisp 2.0 (final).

Common Music runs on the following machine/lisp combinations:

NeXT             2.1, 3.0       ACL 3.1.2, AKCL 1.615
SGI Iris         IRIX 4.0       ACL 4.1 (beta)
Macintosh        System 7       MCL 2.0 (final)
Sun 4            4.1            AKCL 6.15

There is a tutorial about composing using Stella located in the file
