Happy Chinese New Year!

Just missed the first day of the Year of the Horse by a few days, but
the new 2014-02 snapshot has been tagged.  Also, we want to thank
Peter Buhr for allowing us to use his Blade 1500 to build and test
cmucl.  This month's snapshot was built on that machine.  Thanks!

Binaries will be uploaded soon.  

Some key changes are listed below.  Check the release notes for other

o Micro-optimizations in arithmetic vops for x86/sse2, reducing the
  number of memory loads in some cases.
o Run-time checks for zero pages are now disabled; the lazy zeroing of
  heap pages has been the default for some time without problems, so
  the run-time check is disabled.
o A serious error in the complex multiply vop on sparc has been fixed.
