I am working for ITA Software as a hacker, mostly programming in Common Lisp. I also maintain two commercial projects using CL: http://quickhoney.com/ is an image database used by two graphics designers to publish their work on the Web, the other is http://createrainforest.org/ which is a web site to gather donations for an Orang Utan preservation project in Indonesia.
Both systems will be majorly updated during this year. RSS feeds are high on the list, Quickhoney wants a shop and createrainforest.org will move into Google Earth. They currently run on cmucl 19c, but they will either be upgraded to cmucl 19e or SBCL for better Unicode support. They are both based on the http://bknr.net/ framework and deployed on FreeBSD. I am pretty much absorbed by ITA work, but I have a hacker working on BKNR and the associated projects full-time.
Libray wise, we are moving away from Portable Aserve to Hunchentoot. We use CXML, CL-GD, CL-PPCRE, CL-INTERPOL, CL-PDF, CL-MIME, CL-SMTP, CL-JSON, DRAKMA and ALEXANDRIA.
We are also working on the Framework to make it officially support CCL, SBCL and cmucl (as soon as 19E is released). One of our goals is fully automated testing of BKNR and its dependencies on all supported platforms. We are currently testing on FreeBSD/amd64, FreeBSD/i386 and Linux/i386.
