  It now appears to be the case that the last of the vendors planning to
  base their initial implementations on PCL have begun the modifications
  they plan to make.  They are now off on their own track.  This is great
  news, it means that no matter what Common Lisp you use, you will soon
  have access to a supported, product-quality CLOS implementation.

This may be a sign of CLOS' maturity, but a vendor CLOS is pretty
useless for some of us until it supports a MOP.  The job isn't done
until then.  It could be a Rainy Day for a long time.


  I want to thank all the people who have, in the past few years, helped
  with PCL.  I especially want to thank all of those patient PCL users.
  Your use of PCL, and the comments you made, provided a lot of feedback
  to the CLOS design group.  This feedback helped shape CLOS into the
  language it is today.
Thank you too, Gregor.
