   The release note for the MCL 2.0b1 (page 8) states that the
   implementation is still incomplete but will be completed before the
   release. I was wondering whether Apple is going to support the CLOS
   metaobject protocol, that is, will DEFGENERIC, DEFCLASS etc. accept
   the :meta... keywords?

We will not support the full MOP with this release, but we will
support the :METACLASS keyword to DEFCLASS, the
allow subclassing of STANDARD-CLASS, STANDARD-METHOD, &
STANDARD-GENERIC-FUNCTION.  Basically, if it's in CLtL Second Edition,
we intend for it to be in MCL 2.0 final.
