I released sbcl-1.0.33 last week; there's a good amount of new stuff in there, including support for NetBSD on the x86-64, some new introspection and tunable functionality, and also a whole chunk of Unicode and external-format work that I meant to do some months ago.

Today I got round to giving SBCL's website a little bit of an update; not only does it reflect the most recent release – something we've got a little bit lax on recently – but also I have updated my gpg key information. Since Launchpad seems to have taken for our bugtracking needs (at least I'm reasonably content with it), I've also taken the opportunity to link the bug numbers in the news page to the relevant bug entries in launchpad. This is still very Web 1.0, I recognize; I was at a networking event today where the highly eminent keynote speaker spent about 20 minutes essentially saying (and I paraphrase mercilessly) "social web, linked data, this is the FUTURE, it has reached a TIPPING POINT, we are on the road to DATA MASHUP WEB 3.0" and I feel relatively content to stick with my curmudgeonly Web 1.0 view of the world for now.
