XCVB - a shift from ASDF

Faré just announced XCVB, a (planned) scalable system to build large software in Lisp.

His message to the CCLAN list includes a writeup of current issues with ASDF for large systems and design plans for how to address them with XCVB. It includes a glimpse into some of the challenges faced by ITA when building their large Common Lisp projects.
