Hardly. Don't call CMUCL dead yet. There are a number of us
who still strongly prefer it to SBCL for various reasons, e.g.,
SBCL ripped out the interpreter & the byte-code compiler, both
of which *I* use to good effect with CMUCL in certain situations.
I think it's more accurate to say that the CMUCL developer & user
community is simply "quieter" than the SBCL folks. But "quiet"
doesn't mean "dead", just "stable" [like CL itself!].
p.s. Speaking of which, though, whatever happened to that *other*
major CMUCL spinoff, Scieneer? <http://scieneer.com/> and
<http://scieneer.com/scl/index.html> seem to have been updated
recently, so I'm guessing they are still alive & kicking. They
seem to be supporting some interesting configurations at what
looks like reasonable prices: <http://scieneer.com/s/index.html>.
