Quickref 4.0 beta 1 "The Aftermath" is released

Dear all,

as previously announced, I have released the first Quickref version compatible with Declt 4.0 (which is now at beta 2) and which is going to keep track of the development over there. Because Declt 4 is currently considered in beta state, so is Quickref 4 for the time being.

There are a number of important changes in this new major version of the library. Not much interesting from the outside is an infrastructure overhaul which improves the parallel support. The index generation code has also been rewritten to benefit from the recent changes in Declt. Slightly more interesting from the outside is an improvement of the self-documenting aspects of the public interface when used interactively, along with more usage correctness checks. Also, the build environment has been upgraded to Debian Bullseye.

But the most critical change, of course, is the name for the 4.x series. In compliance with the general theme (Iron Maiden songs), and because Quickref 4 is meant to closely follow the brave new Declt version, I thought "Brave New World" would be nice. On the other hand, as Declt wanders through its uncharted 4.0 beta territory, Quickref 4 is likely to suffer the consequences, so perhaps "The Aftermath" is more appropriate...

Anyway, the Docker images are up to date, and so is the Quickref website, currently documenting 2110 Common Lisp libraries.

Enjoy!

Quickref 3.0 "The Alchemist" is released

Following up with the latest release of Declt, I'm also happy to announce the release of Quickref 3.0 "The Alchemist", our reference manuals aggregator for Quicklisp libraries. The official website has been updated yesterday with both the latest Quicklisp version, and the new Declt, resulting in the documentation of 1792 Common Lisp libraries.

Quickref 2.0 "Be Quick or Be Dead" is released

Surfing on the energizing wave of ELS 2019, the 12 European Lisp Symposium, I'm happy to announce the release of Quickref 2.0, codename "Be Quick or Be Dead".

The major improvement in this release, justifying an increment of the major version number (and the very appropriate codename), is the introduction of parallel algorithms for building the documentation. I presented this work last week in Genova so I won't go into the gory details here, but for the brave and impatient, let me just say that using the parallel implementation is just a matter of calling the BUILD function with :parallel t :declt-threads x :makeinfo-threads y (adjust x and y as you see fit, depending on your architecture).

The second featured improvement is the introduction of an author index, in addition to the original one. The author index is still a bit shaky, mostly due to technical problems (calling asdf:find-system almost two thousand times simply doesn't work) and also to the very creative use that some library authors have of the ASDF author and maintainer slots in the system descriptions. It does, however, a quite decent job for the majority of the authors and their libraries'reference manuals.

Finally, the repository now has a fully functional continuous integration infrastructure, which means that there shouldn't be anymore lags between new Quicklisp (or Quickref) releases and new versions of the documentation website.

Thanks to Antoine Hacquard, Antoine Martin, and Erik Huelsmann for their contribution to this release! A lot of new features are already in the pipe. Currently documenting 1720 libraries, and counting...
