abcl-1.3.3 released

In anticipation of the coming season, we have released abcl-1.3.3

Version 1.3.3


*  [r14802,r14813] Add character name for non-breaking space

   following sbcl, ccl and clisp. This permits the Quicklisp system
   spinneret to load.  The #\No-break_space name is a valid
   CHAR-NAME/NAME-CHAR pair, but is emitted directly as a glyph wrt. the
   current output encoding under the CL:FORMAT "~:c" directive as
   these implementations do by default.
