168  declared inline when they're actually reified in the flet/labels body.
169
170* [svn r13217] Forward-referenced classes work properly now.
171

178  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.
179
180* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
181  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.

218* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
219  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
220
221* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
222  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
223
224* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface

243  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
244  servlet container.
245
246* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
247  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT

251  javax.scripting support.
252

263
264* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
265  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
266  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
267  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
268
269* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
270  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first

274* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
275
276* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further

588Fixes/Optimizations
589-------------------
590
591* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
592  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
593
594* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
595  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
596  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
597
598* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
599
600* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
601  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
602
603* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
604  interprets the drive letter.
605
606* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
607  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
608
609* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
610  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
611  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
612
613  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
614  pathname.
615
616* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
617  'abcl.bat' script.
618
619* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
620  Paul Griffionen).
621
622* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
623  Blake McBride).
624
625* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
626  for its PATHNAME member.
627
628* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
629  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
630
631* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
632  lambda inlining.
633
634* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
635  (Alan Ruttenberg).
636
637* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
638  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
639
640* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
641
642* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
643
644* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
645
646* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
647  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
648
649* [svn r12395] Improve arglist display for SLIME (Matthias Hölzl).
650
651* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.

653* [svn r12393] Optimize array functions in compiler which don't
654  require clearing the VALUES array.
655
656* [svn r12392] Optimize/normalize aspects of boot.lisp
657
658* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.
659
660
661Other
662-----
663
664* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
665  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
666
667* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
668  contain the Lisp build instructions.
669
670* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
671  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
672  metaclass.
673
674* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
675  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
676
677* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
678  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
679
680* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
681  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
682
683* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
684  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
685  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
686  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
687  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
688
689* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
690  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
691  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
692  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
693  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
694  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
695  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
696  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
697  exists) references the "inner jar".
698
699* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
700  necessary for creating releases.
701
702* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
703  the operator to LET* forms.
704
705* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
706  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
707
708* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
709  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
710  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
711  once they have been fixed.
712
713* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
714  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
715  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
716  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
717  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
718
719*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
720
721   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
722     inheritance.
723
724   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
725     of jar pathnames.
726
727* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
728  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
729  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
730
731* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
732  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
733  function object.
