To deal with an implementation that doesn't yet provide ASDF 3,
we provide a script that can install ASDF 3
where your implementation goes looking for it
when you <tt>require</tt> it.
Alternatively, if the implementation provides ASDF 2 or 3,
you can download, install and configure a more recent ASDF 3,
and use <tt>(asdf:load-system :asdf)</tt> to upgrade it.
You should always upgrade immediately after the <tt>require</tt>,
and before you use ASDF for anything else
(ASDF 3 does that automatically).
