206Enhancements
207------------
208
209*  [r14802,r14813] Add character name for non-breaking space
210
211   Use a human readable name for character 160, #\No-break_space,
212   following sbcl, ccl and clisp. This permits the Quicklisp system
213   spinneret to load.  The #\No-break_space name is a valid
214   CHAR-NAME/NAME-CHAR pair, but is not emitted as a glyph under the
215   current output encoding under the CL:FORMAT "~:c" directive as
216   these implementations do by default.
217
218   Thanks to Javier Olaechea.

222
223* [r14808] CL:FILE-WRITE-DATE fixed for logical pathnames

234** ABCL.TEST.ANSI:CLEAN-TESTS now acts recursively via appropiate
235   Pathname wildcards to match new directory structure.
236
237* ASDF
238
239  Fix COMPILE-SYSTEM to offer full ANSI environment for ASDF and
240  ABCL-CONTRIB.

280  boundaries [r14749-50] (Massimiliano Ghilardi).
281

322## Fixed
323
324*  The underlying Java Function Interface (JFI) now converts CL:T and
325   CL:NIL to JAVA:+TRUE+ and JAVA:+FALSE+.  Users who wish to
326   reference a JAVA:+NULL+ should do so explicitly.
327   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14694>
328
329*  Make JCALL work in more places.  Thanks to Olof-Joachim Frahm.
330   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14683>
331
332*  Interpolate CL:SLEEP and THREADS:OBJECT-WAIT for timeouts below the
333   Planck timer ("1ns") to a nanosecond.
334   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14679>
335
336*  Update to ASDF 3.1.0.103.
337   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14661>
338
339   Fixes loading of Ironclad and other Quicklisp systems.
340
341*  Fix Uniform Naming Convention (aka "UNC" or "network") paths under Windows.
342   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14659>
343
344   DIRECTORY now works again on UNC paths.
345
346   UNC paths may be either specified with either back slash (#\\) or
347   forward slash (#\/) doubled as the first character in a Pathname
348   namestring.
349
350   The patterns in
351
352        //<server>/<share>/[directories-and-files]
353
354   are parsed as
355
356    <server> is stored as HOST.
357
358    <share> is stored as DEVICE.
359
360    [directories-and-files] gets parsed as per the normal rules under
361    Windows.
362
363   Mixing namestrings with both backslash and slash characters can
364   lead to unpredictable results.  It is recommended not to use
365   backslash characters in namestrings if it can be avoided.  The
366   pathname printed representation is always normalized to using
367   forward slash delimiters.
368
369
370*  Find contrib based on system jar name.

381## Features
382
383*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
384   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
385
386    Aggressively cache and control the use of memory by the underlying
387    Lisp stack frame representation by introducing the private
388    LispThread.StackFrame and LispThread.StackSegments classes.
389
390    Contributed by Dmitry Nadezhin.
391
392    LispStackFrame object are allocated on every
393    LispThread.execute(...) .  However, they are seldom [accessed]
394    ([... verify via] inspect[tion of the] stack trace). This patch
395    delays allocation of LispStackFrame? objects until they are
396    requested.  Raw information about stack frames is stored in
397    stack. Stack is an Object[] array (more precisely a list of [...]4
398    [Mib] Object[] arrays).
399
400    ME: We are going to need a way to try to less agressively grab 4Mib
401    chunks in low memory situations.
402
403    Memory profiling of ABCL shows that the classes with largest
404    allocation count are org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame and
405    org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame.UnavailableArgument.

412*  ASDF 3.0.1.94 shipped with the implementation
413
414*  per function call stack and memory exception handler in CL:COMPILE
415
416   Inline calls to jrun-exception-protected (used by handler-bind to
417   catch out of memory conditions).  This commit saves generation
418   roughly 50 cls files.

421
422*  SYS:SHA256 audited
423
424    The functionality if the SYS:SHA256 algorithim has been audited for
425    use on inputs of single for files with recently shipping ORCL Java 7
426    implementations (through jdk-1.7.0_51).

430* Connect to NetBeans controlled JDWP via SLIME
431
432    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
433    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
434    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition. 
435
436* Install 'abcl.jar' and 'abcl-contrib.jar' locally as Maven artifacts
437
438    The Ant `abcl.mvn.install` target now installs build artifacts
439    into the local Maven repository (Olof-Joachim Frahm)

443## Compatibility
444
445*  CL:DIRECTORY
446
447   The implementation specific :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS argument to the ANSI
448   DIRECTORY function has been changed to nil.  This implements
449   behavior closer to SBCL and guarantees that a DIRECTORY operation
450   will not signal a file error.

455## Fixes
456
457*  Fix CL:SLEEP for intervals less than a millisecond. 
458
459   For intervals less than or equal to a nanosecond, including an
460   interval of zero, the current thread merely yields execution to
461   other threads.

482
483   Instead of calling ABCL-ASDF:RESOLVE in both the ASDF COMPILE-OP
484   and LOAD-OP, we now cache the result of invocation in COMPILE-OP
485   and add this value in the LOAD-OP phase. Contributed by Cyrus

572  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
573     Schlatte (@rudi)
574
575  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
576     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
577
578     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
579     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
580     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.
581
582     ** CLOSER-MOP
583        Quite possible with local patches
584     ** CFFI
585       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
586       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
587     ** HUNCHENTOOT
588       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
589     ** CXML
590        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
591  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler
592
593     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
594     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries. 
595
596     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
597     ** large objects (?!?)
598
599  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
600
601    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
602    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
603    defaults.
604 
605    ** Fields
606    *** getter/setters
607    ** Annotations
608
609
610  * ASDF
611
612     ** Stock ASDF-2.26.6 which includes #+abcl conditional patches
613        for the URL-PATHAME and JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions
614        to ANSI.
615
616  *  ABCL-CONTRIB
617
618     ** ABCL-ASDF
619
620        Network installation of binary artifacts named by Maven POM uris.
621
622        *** checks at runtime if a given class is present in the
623            accessible classloaders
624
625        *** If the check for the presence of a class fails, find a
626            maven-3.0.4 binary locally, execute its Aether connector
627            to retrieve its transitive dependencies from the network.

768    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
769    mechanism from working.
770

817
818 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
819
820 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
821
822 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
823   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
824   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
825   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
826   CLASSPATH.
827
828Changes
829-------
830
831 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
832
833 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

836   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
837
838 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
839   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
840
841 * Compiler clean-ups
842
843 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
844   to *always* create a closure

846 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
847
848 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
849   report the expected (range) of arguments
850
851 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
852
853 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
854
855 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
856   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
857   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
858   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
859   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
860   dependencies. 
861
862*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
863   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
864   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
865
866 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
867   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

1078  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
1079  used to create them.
1080
1081* [svn r13196] Provide more context regarding the reason of autoloading.
1082  Note: This change *hugely* helps debugging.

1112
1113* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
1114  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
1115
1116* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
1117  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
1118
1119* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface

1161  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
1162  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
1163
1164* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
1165  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
1166  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
1167  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.

1587  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
1588  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
1589  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
1590  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
1591  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
1592  exists) references the "inner jar".

1594* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
1595  necessary for creating releases.
1596
1597* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
1598  the operator to LET* forms.
1599
1600* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
1601  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
1602
1603* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
1604  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
1605  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
1606  once they have been fixed.
1607
1608* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
1609  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
1610  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
1611  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
1612  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
1613
1614*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
1615
1616   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
1617     inheritance.
1618
1619   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
1620     of jar pathnames.
1621
1622* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
1623  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
1624  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1625
1626* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
1627  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
1628  function object.
