        <h3>ASDF 2</h3>
        <p>We recently released ASDF 2 (on May 31st 2010).
          It will hopefully be bundled will all official releases
          of Common Lisp implementations made after that date.

        <h3>What it is</h3>
        <p>ASDF is a tool for describing how source files are organized:
          what depends on which and when.
        </p>
40
        <p>It is roughly what Common Lisp hackers use to build software

          where C hackers would use say GNU Make.
        </p>
        <p>ASDF stands for <em>A</em>nother <em>S</em>ystem <em>D</em>efinition <em>F</em>acility,
          in the continuity of the Lisp DEFSYSTEM of yore.

        <h3>Getting it</h3>
        <p>Though they may lag behind the version here, ASDF comes bundled with most Lisps.
          To get the greatest and latest, you can:
        </p>
        <ul>
          <li>download just the source for
            <!--<a href="http://common-lisp.net/gitweb?p=projects/asdf/asdf.git;a=blob_plain;tag=RELEASE;f=asdf.lisp">asdf.lisp</a>,-->

            <!--<a href="http://common-lisp.net/gitweb?p=projects/asdf/asdf.git;tag=RELEASE;a=snapshot;sf=tgz">tarball</a>,-->
            <a href="http://common-lisp.net/project/asdf/asdf.tar.gz">tarball</a>
            to get all bells and whistles,
