SLIME is the Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Emacs.
SLIME extends Emacs with support for interactive programming in Common Lisp.
The features are centered around slime-mode, an Emacs minor-mode that
complements the standard lisp-mode. While lisp-mode supports editing Lisp
source files, slime-mode adds support for interacting with a running Common
Lisp process for compilation, debugging, documentation lookup, and so on.
The slime-mode programming environment follows the example of Emacs’s native
Emacs Lisp environment. It also includes good ideas from similar systems
(such as ILISP) and some new ideas.
SLIME is compatible with the following free Common Lisp implementations:
This package contains the Lisp-side server, needed by the Emacs client
(see package slime).

slime (2:2.23+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use emacs metapackage in Recommends, instead of obsolete emacs24* and
emacs25* packages. (Closes: #923786)

slime (2:2.23+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
* Migrate to new way of specifying debhelper compat level
* Bump S-V to 4.3.0

slime (2:2.22+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream version 2.22+dfsg
2018-07-10 - Sébastien Villemot <>
slime (2:2.21+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* paths.patch: ensure that ASDF is loaded before swank, since the patch
introduces an ASDF symbol in swank
* Add Rules-Requires-Root: no
* Bump to S-V 4.1.5
* Mark cl-swank as M-A foreign
2018-06-30 - Sébastien Villemot <>
slime (2:2.21+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
* Remove patches applied upstream:
+ docbuild.patch
+ reproducible-contributors-list.patch
* Drop dependency on cl-asdf, now that all packaged implementations ship
with ASDF. Adapt paths.patch as a consequence.
* Add an autopkgtest that:
+ runs the testsuite on SBCL
+ tries to load swank on ECL and CLISP
Needs the new testsuite.patch.
Note that autopkgtest-pkg-elpa is not well suited, because it does not run
the testsuite in the right environment.

* Update Vcs-* fields for move to salsa.
* Set Maintainer to debian-common-lisp@l.d.o.

* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.4.
2018-01-10 - Sébastien Villemot <>
slime (2:2.20+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
Use a +dfsg suffix since xref.lisp has been stripped.
* Rewrite d/watch from scratch (and add +dfsg suffix mangle).
* Rewrite d/copyright using machine-readable format 1.0.
Add xref.lisp to Files-Excluded, so that it is automatically stripped by
uscan at each new release.
* Remove slime-protocotol-version.patch, now obsolete since protocol version
comes from SLIME version.
* Rewrite d/rules using dh.
* Bump to debhelper compat level 11.
* Fix Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser fields.
* No longer Build-Depends on dh-lisp.
* Merge Build-Depends and Build-Depends-Indep (we only build arch:all pkgs).
* Add myself to Uploaders.
* Remove obsolete debian/README.building.
* reproducible-contributors-list.patch: new patch by Alexis Bienvenüe, fixes
reproducible build issue. (Closes: #826162)
* Remove cl-lib.patch, since we no longer ship the cl-lib.el library
(bundled with Emacs 24).
* Remove Recommends on xemacs21, since it is no longer supported.
* Convert the Emacs add-on packaging to dh-elpa.
In particular:
- move Debian defaults configuration from emacsen-startup to
- new elpa-macrostep.patch
* Ship the right in slime, and drop duplicate docs in cl-swank.
* noxref.patch: completely remove references to xref.lisp, so that CLISP
works again.
* Fix detection of info file by slime-info command.
* Ship HTML documentation. (Closes: #873299)
* Register documentation into doc-base. (Closes: #873300)
* cl-swank now Enhances slime (instead of Suggesting it).
* Refresh extended description.
* Refresh README.Debian.
* slime now Suggests hyperspec.
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.3.
* Support the nodoc flag in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.
