Expect API to stabilize & first beta release in one month. (Target 8/1).

There are two bindings for Common Lisp.  The other is called CLG.  
I believe that CLG is more mature than CL-GTK.  The implementation
strategies are different - CLG uses a foreign function interface,
CL-GTK uses an RPC mechanism.  

CL-GTK's goals for the first beta release include:

o 95% coverage of GTK/GDK/Glib APIs
o Out-of-box build & install on x86 Linux/BSD using CMUCL or CLISP

The long term goal of the project is to enable even a rank newbie to
pop up a window anywhere that Common Lisp and GTK+ exist.

CL-GTK was originally written by Gilbert Baumann.
