ASDF 2.21 will control the character encoding used by Lisp source files.
The <i>de facto</i> standard, UTF-8,
will be blessed and enforced as the default encoding for all files.
You will be able to specify different encodings
in your defsystem, e.g. <kbd>:encoding :latin1</kbd>,
if you <kbd>:defsystem-depends-on (:asdf-encodings)</kbd>.
While the default will remain to load and compile file
with the <kbd>:default</kbd> external-format,
we encourage all library authors to adopt
the <i>de facto</i> standard, UTF-8,
for all their source files (.lisp and .asd).
Our intent is to bless and enforce this standard encoding
on all these files by default in a not-to-faraway future.
