9  * Updated ASDF to 2.019
10
11  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
12    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.
13
14  * 'abcl.properties.in' now contains examples of optimizing the ABCL
15    wrapper script for 64bit instances for Java7 and for Java6. 
16
17  * [r13720] Randomize string hash computation to guard against
18    exploits.
19
20  * [r13723] New internal API in Package.java for looking up internal
21    vs. external symbols.
22
23Fixes
24-----
25
26  * [#181][r13718] The implementation now correctly loads ASDF definitions
27    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
28    mechanism from working.
29
30  * [#177] Made the mechanism for locating the abcl-contrib archive
31    more robust
32
33  * [#177] LIST-DIRECTORY no longer ignores :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS
34
35  * [r13706] Fix Streadm.readToken() bug reported by Blake McBride.
36
37  * [#183][r13703] Move threads-jss.lisp out of system source to

71Features
72--------
73
74 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
75
76 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
77
78 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
79   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
80   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
81   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
82   CLASSPATH.
83
84Changes
85-------
86
87 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
88
89 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
90
91 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
92   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
93
94 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
95   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
96
97 * Compiler clean-ups
98
99 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
100   to *always* create a closure
101
102 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
103
104 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
105   report the expected (range) of arguments
106
107 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
108
109 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
110
111 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
112   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
113   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
114   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
115   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
116   dependencies. 
117
118*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
119   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
120   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
121
122 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
123   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

330
331* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
332  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
333  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
334  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
335  used to create them.

394  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
395  servlet container.
396
397* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
398  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
399  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).

402  javax.scripting support.
403

414
415* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
416  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
417  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
418  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
419
420* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
421  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first

423  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
424
425* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
426
427* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
428  specifying URI escaping rules.

691  command to disassemble compiled functions.
692
693* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
694  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common

699  structure, respectively.
700
701* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
702  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
703  and the number of generated classes.
704
705* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
706  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
707  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
708  under Windows in its present state.
709
710* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
711
712* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
713  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
714  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
715  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
716
717  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
718
719  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
720  jar.
721
722  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
723
724  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
725
726  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
727  hierarchical entries.
728
729* [svn r12450] Collect unprocessed command-line arguments in
730  EXT:*COMMAND-LINE-ARGUMENT-LIST* (Dennis Lambe Jr.)
731
732* [svn r12414] SYS::%GET-OUTPUT-STREAM-ARRAY returns a Lisp byte array
733  from a Java byte array stream.
734
735* [svn 12402] ABCL.TEST.LISP:RUN-MATCHING will now execute that subset
736  of tests which match a string.
737
738
739Fixes/Optimizations
740-------------------
741
742* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
743  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
744
745* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
746  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
747  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
748
749* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
750
751* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
752  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
753
754* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
755  interprets the drive letter.
756
757* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
758  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
759
760* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
761  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
762  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
763
764  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
765  pathname.
766
767* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
768  'abcl.bat' script.
769
770* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
771  Paul Griffionen).
772
773* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
774  Blake McBride).
775
776* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
777  for its PATHNAME member.
778
779* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
780  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
781
782* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
783  lambda inlining.
784
785* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
786  (Alan Ruttenberg).
787
788* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
789  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
790
791* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
792
793* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
794
795* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
796
797* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
798  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
799
800* [svn r12395] Improve arglist display for SLIME (Matthias Hölzl).
801
802* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.
803
804* [svn r12393] Optimize array functions in compiler which don't
805  require clearing the VALUES array.

807* [svn r12392] Optimize/normalize aspects of boot.lisp
808
809* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.
810
811
812Other
813-----
814
815* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
816  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
817
818* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
819  contain the Lisp build instructions.
820
821* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
822  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
823  metaclass.
824
825* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
826  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
827
828* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
829  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
830
831* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
832  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
833
834* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
835  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
836  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
837  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
838  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
839
840* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
841  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
842  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
843  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
844  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
845  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
846  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
847  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
848  exists) references the "inner jar".
849
850* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
851  necessary for creating releases.
852
853* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
854  the operator to LET* forms.
855
856* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
857  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
858
859* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
860  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
861  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
862  once they have been fixed.
863
864* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
865  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
866  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
867  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
868  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
869
870*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
871
872   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
873     inheritance.
874
875   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
876     of jar pathnames.
877
878* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
879  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
880  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
881
882* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
883  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
884  function object.

1110 Summary of changes:
1111 -------------------
1112  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
1113     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
1114  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
1115  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
1116  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
1117  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
1118     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
1119  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
1120  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
1121  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
1122     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
1123  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
1124  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
1125  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
1126  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
1127  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
1128     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
1129  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
1130  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
1131      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
1132      being EQ
1133  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)

1144  * Many many compiler code cleanups
1145  * NetBeans project files
1146  * Support for CDR6 (See http://cdr.eurolisp.org/document/6/)
1147  * More efficient code emission in the compiler
1148  * Ant build targets for testing (abcl.test)
1149  * Use ConcurrentHashMap to store the lisp threads for increased performance
1150  * Fix adjustability of expressly adjustable arrays (ticket #28)
1151  * Fix calculation of upperbound on ASH in the compiler
1152     (don't calculate numbers too big, instead, return '*')
1153  * Introduce LispInteger as the super type of Bignum and Fixnum
1154  * Boxing/unboxing for SingleFloat and DoubleFloat values,
1155      inclusive of unboxed calculations
1156  * Fixed URL decoding bug in loadCompiledFunction (use java.net.URLDecoder)
1157  * Fixed line number counting
1158  * Inlining of simple calculations (+/-/*)
1159  * All static fields declared 'final'
1160  * Add support for java.lang.Long based on Bignum to our FFI
