21
22  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
23     Schlatte (@rudi)
24
25  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
26     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
27
28     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
29     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
30     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.
31
32     ** CLOSER-MOP
33        Quite possible with local patches
34     ** CFFI
35       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
36       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
37     ** HUNCHENTOOT
38       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
39     ** CXML
40        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
41  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler
42
43     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
44     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries. 
45
46     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
47     ** large objects (?!?)
48
49  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
50
51    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
52    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
53    defaults.
54 
55    ** Fields
56    *** getter/setters
57    ** Annotations
58
59
60  * ASDF
61
62     ** Stock ASDF-2.26 with conditional patches for the URL-PATHAME and
63        JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions to ANSI.
64
65  *  ABCL-CONTRIB
66
67     ** ABCL-ASDF
68
69        Network installation of binary artifacts named by Maven POM uris.
70
71        *** checks at runtime if a given class is present in the
72            accessible classloaders
73
74        *** If the check for the presence of a class fails, find a
75            maven-3.0.4 binary locally, execute its Aether connector
76            to retrieve its transitive dependencies from the network.
77
78      ** JSS
79         
80         Java Syntax Sucks.  q.v [lsw2]
81   
82         Extensive bugfixing wrt. method resolution [#229]
83
84      ** JFLI
85
86         A "captured from the wild" version of what @rich.hickey did before Clojure.

217
218  * Updated ASDF to 2.019
219
220  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
221    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.

231
232Fixes
233-----
234

236    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
237    mechanism from working.

285
286 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
287
288 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
289
290 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
291   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
292   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
293   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
294   CLASSPATH.
295
296Changes
297-------
298
299 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
300
301 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
302
303 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
304   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
305
306 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
307   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
308
309 * Compiler clean-ups
310
311 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
312   to *always* create a closure
313
314 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
315
316 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
317   report the expected (range) of arguments
318
319 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
320
321 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
322
323 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
324   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
325   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
326   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
327   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
328   dependencies. 
329
330*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
331   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
332   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
333
334 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
335   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

542
543* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
544  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
545  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
546  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
547  used to create them.
548
549* [svn r13196] Provide more context regarding the reason of autoloading.
550  Note: This change *hugely* helps debugging.
551

582  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
583

585  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
586
587* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface

628  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
629  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
630  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
631
632* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
633  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
634  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
635  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.

1052* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
1053  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
1054  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
1055  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
1056  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
1057  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
1058  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
1059  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
1060  exists) references the "inner jar".

1073  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
1074  once they have been fixed.
1075
1076* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
1077  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
1078  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
1079  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
1080  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.

1333  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
1334     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
