gcl

GNU Common Lisp

 Old Version: 2.6.7 -> New Version: 2.6.8

Project site: (http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl)

Note.png
Editor's note
OK, this one is really confusing. The package was 2.6.7 in the original F10 yum database, but the current version is 2.6.8, dated well before the release of F10. The project site however lists the latest version as 2.6.7 and that from 2005. Further, there is bug work in rawhide (472780) that is dated well after F10 that seems to indicate that gcl is not currently in Fedora. I have an email to the person working the bug.


gforth

Fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth language

Fedora 11 includes version 0.7.0 of gforth.
