30      Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL) is an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp
31      that runs in a Java virtual machine. It provides a runtime system, a
32      compiler that compiles Lisp source to JVM bytecode, and an interactive
33      REPL for program development.
34      <p>
35      ABCL is distributed under the terms of the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html">GNU General Public
36      License</a>, with a special linking exception. If you link ABCL with your
37      own program, then you do not need to release the source code for that
38      program. However, any changes that you make to ABCL itself must be
39      released in accordance with the terms of the GPL.
40      <p>
41      ABCL runs on platforms that support Java 1.4 (or later), including Linux,
42      Windows, and Mac OS X.
43      <p>
44      ABCL is free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
45      <p>
46      The latest version is 0.0.10, released March 6, 2007.

80  <b>Bugs</b>
81</font>
82<dl>
83    <dd>
84        ABCL is a young implementation (particularly by Lisp standards). You
85        are certain to encounter bugs.
86        <p>
87        ABCL 0.0.10 fails 67 out of 21696 tests in the GCL ANSI test suite.
88        <p>
89        ABCL's CLOS is intolerably slow and does not handle on-the-fly
90        redefinition of classes correctly. There is no support for the long
91        form of DEFINE-METHOD-COMBINATION, and certain other required CLOS
92        features are also missing. Enough CLOS is there to run ASDF and
93        CL-PPCRE, if you're in no hurry. There's no MOP worth mentioning.
94        <p>
95        Since this is an early public release, there might be build problems as
96        well as runtime bugs.
97        <p>
98        Please report problems to the <a href="https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/armedbear-j-devel">j development mailing list</a>
99        (you must be subscribed to post).

108  <dd>
109    The README file in the root directory of the source distribution contains
110    instructions for building ABCL.
111    <p>
112    Java 1.4 or later is required.
113    <a href="http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp">Java 1.5</a>
114    is recommended. There are
115    <a href="http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=20070218045318.5111%40stephen">
116    unresolved performance issues</a> with Java 1.6. To build ABCL, you'll need
117    the full JDK; the JRE is not enough. </dd>
