32--------
33
34 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
35
36 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
37
38 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
39   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
40   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
41   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
42   CLASSPATH.
43
44Changes
45-------
46
47 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
48
49 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
50
51 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
52   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
53
54 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
55   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
56
57 * Compiler clean-ups
58
59 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
60   to *always* create a closure
61
62 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
63
64 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
65   report the expected (range) of arguments
66
67 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
68
69 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
70
71 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
72   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
73   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
74   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
75   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
76   dependencies. 
77
78*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
79   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
80   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
81
82 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
83   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.
84

290
291* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
292  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.

374
375* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better

379
380* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
381  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
382  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to

384
385* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
386
387* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further

601    returned as characters from CODE-CHAR.
602
603* [ticket #93] Reader doesn't handle zero returned values from
604    macro functions correctly.
605

608
609* [ticket #86] No restarts available to kill a thread, if none
610    bound by user code.
611
612* [svn r12586] Increased function dispatch speed by eliminating
613    FIND-CLASS calls (replacing them by constant references).
614
615* [svn r12656] PATHNAME-JAR now properly uses HTTP/1.1 HEAD requests

662  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
663  and the number of generated classes.
664
665* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
666  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
667  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
668  under Windows in its present state.
669
670* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
671
672* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
673  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
674  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
675  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
676
677  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
678
679  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
680  jar.
681
682  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
683
684  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
685
686  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
687  hierarchical entries.

699Fixes/Optimizations
700-------------------
701
702* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
703  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
704
705* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
706  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
707  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
708
709* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
710
711* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
712  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
713
714* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
715  interprets the drive letter.
716
717* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
718  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
719
720* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
721  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
722  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
723
724  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
725  pathname.
726
727* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
728  'abcl.bat' script.
729
730* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
731  Paul Griffionen).
732
733* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
734  Blake McBride).
735
736* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
737  for its PATHNAME member.
738
739* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
740  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
741
742* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
743  lambda inlining.
744
745* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
746  (Alan Ruttenberg).
747
748* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
749  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
750
751* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
752
753* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
754
755* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
756
757* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
758  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
759

761
762* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.

772Other
773-----
774
775* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
776  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
777
778* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
779  contain the Lisp build instructions.
780
781* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
782  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
783  metaclass.
784
785* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
786  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
787
788* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
789  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
790
791* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
792  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
793
794* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
795  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
796  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
797  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
798  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
799
800* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
801  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
802  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
803  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
804  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
805  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
806  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
807  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
808  exists) references the "inner jar".
809
810* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
811  necessary for creating releases.
812
813* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
814  the operator to LET* forms.
815
816* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
817  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
818
819* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
820  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
821  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
822  once they have been fixed.
823
824* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
825  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
826  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
827  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
828  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
829
830*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
831
832   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
833     inheritance.
834
835   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
836     of jar pathnames.
837
838* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
839  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
840  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
841
842* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
843  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
844  function object.
