I have tagged CLPM 0.4.0 and posted the build artifacts at https://files.clpm.dev/clpm/. This release brings quite the laundry list of bug fixes and enhancements, including the much awaited Mac M1 support. The full changelog summary is below the break.
Additionally, the burgeoning CLPM community now has more spaces to interact. If
you're interested in learning about or getting help on CLPM, I encourage you to
#clpm on Libera.chat. We have a Matrix room as well
but the Libera room is currently more active and preferred.
If you are already using CLPM, I encourage you to subscribe to the clpm-announce mail list. This is a low traffic list where new releases will be announced.

Quicklisp has had a profound impact on the CL community. It's transformed the way CL devs share libraries, made it easier and encouraged devs to re-use existing code instead of implementing everything in house, and is widely used. While Quicklisp took the CL community a huge step forward, I nevertheless think we can and should do better.
To that end, I've been working on two interlinked projects, CLPM and the Common Lisp Project Index (CLPI). I've posted about CLPM in various places before and awareness of it is already growing in the CL community. Therefore, this post will focus on CLPI and why I think it is important. My ultimate goal is to find like-minded people to collaborate with on bringing CLPI (or something similar) to reality.
