1. OpenGL bindings update using SWIG 1.3.30

This is an update to the binding of the OpenGL foreign function
definitions by the current SWIG version 1.3.30. Older bindings will
continue to work, and users should be able to upgrade to these new
bindings with little or no changes to code.

2. Exploring the Microsoft IE OLE interface

This article uses ACL to explore the Microsoft Internet Explorer's OLE
interface with the ole:def-ole-linkage system and the more flexible,
but lower-level, remote-autotool system.

3. The 2007 International Lisp Conference

The Association of Lisp Users is pleased to announce its next
conference, the venue will be Clare College in the historic centre of
Cambridge, England. The conference will run from April 1st to 4th,

4. AllegroGraph Version 1.1 is now available

AllegroGraph Version 1.1 uses a faster mechanism to store and retrieve
URI information. The new method also uses much less memory so that
larger RDF files can be loaded.

The triple store disk format has changed between release 1.0 and
release 1.1. Release 1.1 will not read 1.0 triple stores. The easiest
thing to do is to recreate your databases with the new version.
