Unrevised from 8.0 to 8.1.
8.0 version

gsgc-step-generation

Arguments:

Calling this function, which returns the new value of the :current-generation parameter, increases the current generation number and, if necessary, the value of :tenure-limit as well. Since tenuring only occurs at scavenge time and calling this function does not cause a scavenge, objects are not tenured simply by a call to this function. Users should be sure that this function is called regularly, either by having the value of the switch :auto-step be true, or by explicitly calling this function.

See System parameters and switches in gc.htm for more information on garbage collection and gsgc switches.
