247  translations for system Lisp source and the root of the Java package
248  structure, respectively.
249
250* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
251  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
252  and the number of generated classes.
253
254* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
255  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
256  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
257  under Windows in its present state.
258
259* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
260
261* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
262  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
263  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
264  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
265
266  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
267
268  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
269  jar.
270
271  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
272

294* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
295  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
296  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
297
298* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
299
300* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
301  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
302
303* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
304  interprets the drive letter.
305
306* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
307  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
308
309* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
310  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
311  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
312
313  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
314  pathname.
315
316* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
317  'abcl.bat' script.
318
319* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
320  Paul Griffionen).
321
322* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
323  Blake McBride).
324
325* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
326  for its PATHNAME member.
327
328* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
329  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
330
331* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
332  lambda inlining.
333
334* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
335  (Alan Ruttenberg).
336
337* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
338  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
339
340* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
341
342* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
343
344* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
345
346* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
347  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
348
349* [svn r12395] Improve arglist display for SLIME (Matthias Hölzl).
350
351* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.

353* [svn r12393] Optimize array functions in compiler which don't
354  require clearing the VALUES array.

361Other
362-----
363
364* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
365  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
366
367* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
368  contain the Lisp build instructions.
369
370* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
371  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
372  metaclass.
373
374* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
375  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
376
377* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
378  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
379
380* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
381  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
382
383* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
384  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
385  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
386  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
387  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
388
389* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
390  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
391  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
392  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
393  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
394  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
395  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
396  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
397  exists) references the "inner jar".
398
399* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
400  necessary for creating releases.
401
402* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
403  the operator to LET* forms.
404
405* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
406  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
407
408* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
409  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
410  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
411  once they have been fixed.
412
413* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
414  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
415  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
416  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
417  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
418
419*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
420
421   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
422     inheritance.
423
424   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
425     of jar pathnames.
426
427* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
428  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
429  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
430
431* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
432  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
433  function object.

551  Summary of changes:
552  ------------------
553  * Fixed generated wrapper for path names with spaces (Windows)
554  * Fixed ticket #58: Inspection of Java objects in Lisp code
555  * Restored functionality of the built-in profiler
556  * Profiler extended with hot-spot counting (as opposed to call counting)
557  * Stack sampling in the profiler moved to scheduler thread to
558    reduce impact on the program execution thread
559  * THE type-checking for the interpreter
560    (for simple-enough type specifications)
561  * Added structure argument type checking in structure slot
562    accessor functions
563  * Make GENSYM thread-safe
564  * Various performance fixes found by running the raytracer
565    from http://www.ffconsultancy.com/languages/ray_tracer/benchmark.html
566  * Better initarg checking for make-instance and change-class
567    Fixes ansi-test errors CHANGE-CLASS.1.11, MAKE-INSTANCE.ERROR.3,
568    MAKE-INSTANCE.ERROR.4, CHANGE-CLASS.ERROR.4 and SHARED-INITIALIZE.ERROR.4
569  * Improve performance of StackFrames (Erik Huelsmann, Ville Voutilainen,
570    with input from Peter Graves and Douglas Miles)
571  * Improve performance of CLOS eql-specializers via cache (Anton Vodonosov)
572  * 'build-from-lisp.sh' shell script (Tobias Rittweiler)
573  * New threading primitives aligned with Java/JVM constructs (Erik Huelsmann)
574
575      SYNCHRONIZED-ON
576      OBJECT-NOTIFY
577      OBJECT-NOTIFY-ALL
578  * THREADS package created to hold threads related primitives:

581      CURRENT-THREAD DESTROY-THREAD INTERRUPT-THREAD WITH-THREAD-LOCK
582      MAKE-THREAD-LOCK MAKE-THREAD INTERRUPT-THREAD
583
584      MAPCAR-THREADS
585
586      GET-MUTEX MAKE-MUTEX WITH-MUTEX RELEASE-MUTEX
587
588    These primitives are still part of the EXTENSIONS package but are
589    now to be considered as deprecated, marked to be removed with
590    0.22
591  * Stacktraces now contain calls through Java code relevant to
592    debugging (Tobias Rittweiler)
593
594    Backtrace functionality been moved from EXT:BACKTRACE-AS-LIST to
595    SYS:BACKTRACE to mark this changes.  The methods SYS:FRAME-TO-STRING
596    and SYS:FRAME-TO-LIST can be used to inspect the new
597    LISP_STACK_FRAME and JAVA_STACK_FRAME objects
598  * Various stream input performance optimizations
599  * Fixed breakage when combining Gray streams and the pretty printer
600  * Performance improvements for resolution of non-recursive #=n and #n#

659 Summary of changes:
660 -------------------
661  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
662     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
663  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
664  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
665  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
666  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
667     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
668  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
669  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
670  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
671     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
672  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
673  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
674  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
675  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
676  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
677     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
678  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
679  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
680      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
681      being EQ
682  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)
