Franz patched the emacs-lisp interface slowness that was keeping me from upgrading to 6.1:
Thu Jan 17 12:06:47 PST 2002 Patch: acl612.dll, acli612.dll Windows only: Corrects a problem on windows where winsock was not waking a thread waiting on i/o, sometimes causing 1+ second long delays when activating a thread. This was particularly noticeable when using ACL via the Emacs-Lisp interface. Impact: Recommended for ELI users on Windows platforms.
Mike installed it, and it works. Lisp in emacs is fast again.Posted by jjwiseman at January 18, 2002 03:14 PM
