    Hello all! This is the beginning of "lispx", a distribution list for 
    discussing X windows applications in Lisp. This list is starting as 
    a result of a BOF session held at Xhibition '88 at MIT last

    To summarize what was disucussed at Xhibition:

	Currently two packages are available for writing X windows applications
	in Lisp: CLX, a functional equivalent to Xlib written in Common Lisp,
	and CLUE, an object oriented toolkit for X11 written in Common Lisp
	which requires PCL (portable common loops) and CLX.

	Looks like everyone would like to see all this stuff run under
	KCL, and work is being done in that direction. Since CLX is part
	of the core X11 distribution it may not be a bad idea to solicit
	to X consortium for better of support KCL since it is a NON-proprietary
	Common Lisp implementation.

	An interest was expressed in more high-level lisp interfaces to
	X (i.e. widget sets in lisp?).

	Let's start an e-mail distribution list on this topic!

    Well, that's basically the bottom line. If anyone cares to add

    This list is very small at the moment, hopefully it will increase in
    size. After I've heard some feedback I will post the existance of
    this list to xpert (assuming that there is at least still an interest
    among those that asked to start it!).
