Closing in on CLOSER-MOP in abcl-1.1.0-dev

In response to inquiries recently on #abcl (from @loke among others), we'd like to point out that recent work on the Armed Bear trunk--what will be abcl-1.1--by Rudi has started to converge on a plausible AMOP strategy.  Stay tuned.

ABCL 1.0.1 Released

All users of abcl-1.0.0 are recommended to migrate to abcl-1.0.1 as it fixes the abcl-contrib mechanism, an unfortunate oversight in our giddiness at being able to release at ECLM 2011.

Now the following incantation

(require 'abcl-contrib)
(require 'jss)

should result in a working JSS.

In addition to restoring the loading of ASDF definitions from jar archives, we've randomized some of our String hashes to prevent a purported JVM exploit spotted recently and shipped with ASDF-2.019.
