Xanalys has upgraded their online, publically accessible copy of the HyperSpec from version 4.0 to 5.0 (well, either 5.0 or 6.0; The version comment that is normally in the HTML source is gone).
The new version has some real improvements (format directives and sharpsign reader macros are better indexed), but the URL structure is pretty different, which will break any older HyperSpec lookup code you may be using (E.g. Erik Naggum's hyperspec.el for emacs, or Rainer Joswig's ANSI-CL-HyperSpec for MCL).
Unfortunately, it also means that for now the first link that comes up when you search for "hyperspec" on Google is broken.
This article by Kent Pitman includes more information on the new stuff in 5.0. My favorite is that the filenames are now 8.3 compatible, which supposedly saves a lot of disk space!Posted by jjwiseman at February 01, 2002 02:54 PM
