20
21  * Updated ASDF to 2.019
22
23  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
24    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.
25
26  * 'abcl.properties.in' now contains examples of optimizing the ABCL
27    wrapper script for 64bit instances for Java7 and for Java6. 
28
29  * [r13720] Randomize string hash computation to guard against
30    exploits.
31
32  * [r13723] New internal API in Package.java for looking up internal
33    vs. external symbols.
34
35Fixes
36-----
37
38  * [#181][r13718] The implementation now correctly loads ASDF definitions
39    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
40    mechanism from working.
41
42  * [#177] Made the mechanism for locating the abcl-contrib archive
43    more robust
44
45  * [#177] LIST-DIRECTORY no longer ignores :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS

83Features
84--------
85
86 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
87
88 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
89
90 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
91   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
92   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
93   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
94   CLASSPATH.
95
96Changes
97-------
98
99 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
100
101 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
102
103 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
104   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
105
106 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
107   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
108
109 * Compiler clean-ups
110
111 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
112   to *always* create a closure
113
114 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
115
116 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
117   report the expected (range) of arguments
118
119 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
120
121 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
122
123 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
124   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
125   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
126   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
127   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
128   dependencies. 
129
130*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
131   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
132   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
133
134 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
135   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

341  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.
342
343* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
344  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
345  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
346  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
347  used to create them.
348

406  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
407  servlet container.
408
409* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
410  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
411  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).

426
427* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
428  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
429  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
430  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
431
432* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
433  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
434  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
435  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
436
437* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
438
439* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
440  specifying URI escaping rules.
441
442* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown

646    in a context wanting an unboxed return value (typically a
647    logical expression).
648
649* [svn r12635] ABCL loads stale fasls instead of updated source
650    even when LOAD is called with a file name without extension.
651
652* [ticket #92] Codepoints between #xD800 and #xDFFF are incorrectly
653    returned as characters from CODE-CHAR.
654
655* [ticket #93] Reader doesn't handle zero returned values from

686
687* [svn r12675] '--nosystem' commandline option inhibits loading of
688    'system.lisp'.

703  command to disassemble compiled functions.
704
705* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
706  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common

711  structure, respectively.
712
713* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
714  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
715  and the number of generated classes.
716
717* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
718  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
719  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
720  under Windows in its present state.
721
722* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
723
724* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
725  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
726  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
727  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
728
729  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
730
731  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
732  jar.
733
734  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
735
736  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
737
738  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
739  hierarchical entries.

753
754* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
755  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
756
757* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
758  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
759  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
760
761* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
762
763* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
764  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
765
766* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
767  interprets the drive letter.
768
769* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
770  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
771
772* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
773  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
774  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
775
776  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
777  pathname.
778
779* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
780  'abcl.bat' script.
781
782* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
783  Paul Griffionen).
784
785* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
786  Blake McBride).
787
788* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
789  for its PATHNAME member.
790
791* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
792  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.

794* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
795  lambda inlining.
796
797* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
798  (Alan Ruttenberg).
799
800* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
801  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
802
803* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
804
805* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
806
807* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
808
809* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing

825-----
826
827* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
828  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
829
830* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
831  contain the Lisp build instructions.
832
833* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
834  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
835  metaclass.
836
837* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
838  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
839
840* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
841  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
842
843* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
844  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
845
846* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
847  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
848  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
849  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
850  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
851
852* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
853  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
854  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
855  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
856  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
857  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
858  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
859  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
860  exists) references the "inner jar".
861
862* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
863  necessary for creating releases.
864
865* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
866  the operator to LET* forms.
867
868* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
869  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
870
871* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
872  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
873  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
874  once they have been fixed.
875
876* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
877  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
878  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
879  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
880  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
881
882*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
883
884   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
885     inheritance.
886
887   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
888     of jar pathnames.
889
890* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
891  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
892  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
893
894* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
895  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
896  function object.

1122 Summary of changes:
1123 -------------------
1124  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
1125     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
1126  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
1127  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
1128  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
1129  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
1130     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
1131  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
1132  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
1133  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
1134     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
1135  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
1136  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
1137  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
1138  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
1139  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
1140     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
1141  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
1142  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
1143      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
1144      being EQ
1145  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)

1160  * Ant build targets for testing (abcl.test)
1161  * Use ConcurrentHashMap to store the lisp threads for increased performance
1162  * Fix adjustability of expressly adjustable arrays (ticket #28)
1163  * Fix calculation of upperbound on ASH in the compiler
1164     (don't calculate numbers too big, instead, return '*')
1165  * Introduce LispInteger as the super type of Bignum and Fixnum
1166  * Boxing/unboxing for SingleFloat and DoubleFloat values,
1167      inclusive of unboxed calculations
1168  * Fixed URL decoding bug in loadCompiledFunction (use java.net.URLDecoder)
