72## Fixed
73
74*  The underlying Java Function Interface (JFI) now converts CL:T and
75   CL:NIL to JAVA:+TRUE+ and JAVA:+FALSE+.  Users who wish to
76   reference a JAVA:+NULL+ should do so explicitly.
77   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14694>
78
79*  Make JCALL work in more places.  Thanks to Olof-Joachim Frahm.
80   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14683>
81
82*  Interpolate CL:SLEEP and THREADS:OBJECT-WAIT for timeouts below the
83   Planck timer ("1ns") to a nanosecond.
84   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14679>
85
86*  Update to ASDF 3.1.0.103.
87   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14661>
88
89   Fixes loading of Ironclad and other Quicklisp systems.
90
91*  Fix Uniform Naming Convention (aka "UNC" or "network") paths under Windows.
92   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14659>
93
94   DIRECTORY now works again on UNC paths.
95
96   UNC paths may be either specified with either back slash (#\\) or
97   forward slash (#\/) doubled as the first character in a Pathname
98   namestring.
99
100   The patterns in
101
102        //<server>/<share>/[directories-and-files]
103
104   are parsed as
105
106    <server> is stored as HOST.
107
108    <share> is stored as DEVICE.
109
110    [directories-and-files] gets parsed as per the normal rules under
111    Windows.
112
113   Mixing namestrings with both backslash and slash characters can
114   lead to unpredictable results.  It is recommended not to use
115   backslash characters in namestrings if it can be avoided.  The
116   pathname printed representation is always normalized to using
117   forward slash delimiters.
118
119
120*  Find contrib based on system jar name.
121   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14657>

131## Features
132
133*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
134   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
135
136    Aggressively cache and control the use of memory by the underlying
137    Lisp stack frame representation by introducing the private
138    LispThread.StackFrame and LispThread.StackSegments classes.
139
140    Contributed by Dmitry Nadezhin.
141
142    LispStackFrame object are allocated on every
143    LispThread.execute(...) .  However, they are seldom [accessed]
144    ([... verify via] inspect[tion of the] stack trace). This patch
145    delays allocation of LispStackFrame? objects until they are
146    requested.  Raw information about stack frames is stored in
147    stack. Stack is an Object[] array (more precisely a list of [...]4
148    [Mib] Object[] arrays).
149
150    ME: We are going to need a way to try to less agressively grab 4Mib
151    chunks in low memory situations.
152
153    Memory profiling of ABCL shows that the classes with largest
154    allocation count are org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame and
155    org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame.UnavailableArgument.
156
157    Contributed by Dmitry Nadezhin.

160    [r14579]: http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14579
161
162*  ASDF 3.0.1.94 shipped with the implementation
163
164*  per function call stack and memory exception handler in CL:COMPILE
165
166   Inline calls to jrun-exception-protected (used by handler-bind to
167   catch out of memory conditions).  This commit saves generation
168   roughly 50 cls files.
169
170   [r14552]: http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14552
171
172*  SYS:SHA256 audited
173
174    The functionality if the SYS:SHA256 algorithim has been audited for
175    use on inputs of single for files with recently shipping ORCL Java 7
176    implementations (through jdk-1.7.0_51).
177
178    [r14582]:  http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14582
179
180* Connect to NetBeans controlled JDWP via SLIME
181
182    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
183    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
184    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition. 
185
186* Install 'abcl.jar' and 'abcl-contrib.jar' locally as Maven artifacts
187
188    The Ant `abcl.mvn.install` target now installs build artifacts
189    into the local Maven repository (Olof-Joachim Frahm)
190
191    [r14579]: http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14606
192
193## Compatibility
194
195*  CL:DIRECTORY
196
197   The implementation specific :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS argument to the ANSI
198   DIRECTORY function has been changed to nil.  This implements
199   behavior closer to SBCL and guarantees that a DIRECTORY operation
200   will not signal a file error.
201

203   [ticket-340]: http://abcl.org/trac/ticket/340
204
205## Fixes
206
207*  Fix CL:SLEEP for intervals less than a millisecond. 
208
209   For intervals less than or equal to a nanosecond, including an
210   interval of zero, the current thread merely yields execution to
211   other threads.

224#### abcl-asdf
225
226*  Now working with both Maven 3.0.x and 3.1.x.  Thanks to Anton for
227   the help!
228
229   [ticket-328]: http://abcl.org/trac/ticket/328
230
231*  cache Maven dependency resolution to avoid repeated lookups.
232
233   Instead of calling ABCL-ASDF:RESOLVE in both the ASDF COMPILE-OP
234   and LOAD-OP, we now cache the result of invocation in COMPILE-OP
235   and add this value in the LOAD-OP phase. Contributed by Cyrus
236   Harmon.

240#### jna
241 
242   Now references jna-4.0.0.  Some incompatibility with CFFI ([in
243   progress with fixing upstream][cffi-easye]).

319Features
320--------
321
322  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
323     Schlatte (@rudi)
324
325  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
326     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
327
328     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
329     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
330     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.
331
332     ** CLOSER-MOP
333        Quite possible with local patches
334     ** CFFI
335       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
336       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
337     ** HUNCHENTOOT
338       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
339     ** CXML
340        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
341  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler
342
343     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
344     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries. 
345
346     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
347     ** large objects (?!?)
348
349  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
350
351    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
352    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
353    defaults.
354 
355    ** Fields
356    *** getter/setters
357    ** Annotations
358
359
360  * ASDF
361
362     ** Stock ASDF-2.26.6 which includes #+abcl conditional patches
363        for the URL-PATHAME and JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions
364        to ANSI.
365
366  *  ABCL-CONTRIB
367
368     ** ABCL-ASDF
369
370        Network installation of binary artifacts named by Maven POM uris.
371
372        *** checks at runtime if a given class is present in the
373            accessible classloaders
374
375        *** If the check for the presence of a class fails, find a
376            maven-3.0.4 binary locally, execute its Aether connector
377            to retrieve its transitive dependencies from the network.
378

567
568 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
569
570 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
571
572 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
573   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
574   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
575   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
576   CLASSPATH.
577
578Changes
579-------
580
581 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
582
583 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

589   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
590
591 * Compiler clean-ups
592
593 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
594   to *always* create a closure

597
598 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
599   report the expected (range) of arguments
600
601 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
602
603 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
604
605 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
606   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
607   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
608   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
609   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
610   dependencies. 
611
612*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
613   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
614   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
615
616 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
617   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

1181Features
1182--------
1183
1184* [svn r12518] *DISASSEMBLER* may now contain a hook which returns the
1185  command to disassemble compiled functions.
1186
1187* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
1188  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common
1189  Lisp", Proc. of the 2007 International Lisp Conference.

1196  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
1197  and the number of generated classes.
1198
1199* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
1200  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
1201  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
1202  under Windows in its present state.
1203
1204* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
1205
1206* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
1207  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
1208  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
1209  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
1210
1211  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
1212
1213  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
1214  jar.
1215
1216  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
1217
1218  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
1219
1220  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
1221  hierarchical entries.
1222
1223* [svn r12450] Collect unprocessed command-line arguments in
1224  EXT:*COMMAND-LINE-ARGUMENT-LIST* (Dennis Lambe Jr.)

1232
1233Fixes/Optimizations
1234-------------------
1235
1236* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
1237  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
1238
1239* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
1240  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
1241  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
1242
1243* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
1244
1245* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
1246  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
1247
1248* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
1249  interprets the drive letter.
1250
1251* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
1252  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
1253
1254* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
1255  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
1256  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
1257
1258  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
1259  pathname.
1260
1261* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
1262  'abcl.bat' script.
1263
1264* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
1265  Paul Griffionen).
1266
1267* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
1268  Blake McBride).
1269
1270* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
1271  for its PATHNAME member.
1272
1273* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
1274  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
1275
1276* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
1277  lambda inlining.
1278
1279* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
1280  (Alan Ruttenberg).
1281
1282* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
1283  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
1284
1285* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
1286
1287* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
1288
1289* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
1290
1291* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
1292  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
1293

1301* [svn r12392] Optimize/normalize aspects of boot.lisp
1302
1303* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.

1306Other
1307-----
1308
1309* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
1310  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
1311
1312* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
1313  contain the Lisp build instructions.
1314
1315* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
1316  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
1317  metaclass.
1318
1319* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
1320  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
1321
1322* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
1323  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1324
1325* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
1326  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
1327
1328* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1329  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
1330  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
1331  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
1332  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
1333
1334* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
1335  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
1336  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
1337  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
1338  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
1339  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
1340  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
1341  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
1342  exists) references the "inner jar".
1343
1344* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
1345  necessary for creating releases.
1346
1347* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
1348  the operator to LET* forms.
1349
1350* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
1351  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
1352
1353* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
1354  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
1355  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
1356  once they have been fixed.
1357
1358* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
1359  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
1360  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
1361  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
1362  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
1363
1364*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
1365
1366   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
1367     inheritance.
1368
1369   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
1370     of jar pathnames.
1371
1372* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
1373  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
1374  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1375
1376* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
1377  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
1378  function object.

1604 Summary of changes:
1605 -------------------
1606  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
1607     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
1608  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
1609  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
1610  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
1611  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
1612     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
1613  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
1614  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
1615  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
1616     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
1617  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
1618  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
1619  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
1620  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
1621  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
1622     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
1623  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
1624  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
1625      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
1626      being EQ
1627  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)

1642  * Ant build targets for testing (abcl.test)
1643  * Use ConcurrentHashMap to store the lisp threads for increased performance
1644  * Fix adjustability of expressly adjustable arrays (ticket #28)
1645  * Fix calculation of upperbound on ASH in the compiler
1646     (don't calculate numbers too big, instead, return '*')
1647  * Introduce LispInteger as the super type of Bignum and Fixnum
1648  * Boxing/unboxing for SingleFloat and DoubleFloat values,
1649      inclusive of unboxed calculations
1650  * Fixed URL decoding bug in loadCompiledFunction (use java.net.URLDecoder)
