1. New OLE/OCX interface released

Allegro CL has for some time provided an OLE interface with its
Allegro CL on Windows. However, it is low-level and quite complex. A
new high-level interface has just been released in an update to
Allegro CL 7.0. (The update can be downloaded with
sys:update-allegro.) The documentation for the new facility is in
ole.htm. (That document also documents the older interface, which is
still supported.)

2. New Allegro Prolog version released

Allegro Prolog, an implementation of Prolog within Allegro CL, is
included with the Allegro CL 7.0 distribution. An update released in
mid September, 2005, provides a new version of Allegro Prolog for
7.0. (The update can be downloaded with sys:update-allegro.) This new
version allows Allegro Prolog to be used as a query language for
AllegroCache (described here )

3. 64-bit Allegro CL 7.0 is now available on Solaris (AMD64/Opteron) 10

64-bit Allegro CL 7.0 has now been released on Solaris 10 for
AMD64/Opteron hardware, to augment our SPARC 32-bit and 64-bit
versions for SPARC. Contact for more information on the
64-bit Allegro CL 7.0 on Solaris AMD64/Opteron.

4. Atom 1.0 feeds now available

In addition to RSS 0.91, 1.0 and 2.0 feeds, we now have an Atom 1.0

5. Extravagaria 3: Hunting Creativity, A Workshop At OOPSLA 2005
October 16, 2005

Artists and scientists both search for understanding. Their methods
and approaches differ, and their results are in different languages,
but there is no a priori reason to grant primacy to either. Art seems
predicated on creativity while science and engineering are thought
less so. The question arises what creativity is and whether creativity
in the sciences and engineering is the same as in art. This workshop
explores that and related questions.

If you're interested in creativity in the arts and sciences, please
consider joining. The workshop will be held at OOPSLA 2005 in San
Diego on October 16. for more details.
