Clozure CL Description

Clozure CL was forked from Macintosh Common Lisp (MCL) in 1998 and the development has been entirely separate since.

When it was forked from MCL in 1998, the new Lisp was named OpenMCL. Subsequently, Clozure renamed its Lisp to Clozure CL, partly because its ancestor MCL has been released as open source.

Clozure thought it might be confusing for users if there were two independent open-source projects with such similar names. The new name also reflects Clozure CL’s current status as the flagship product of Clozure Associates.
