25<dl>
26  <dt>Fixed an issue causing FASLs to be able to contain only a limited
27    number of functions.
28  </dt>
29  <dd>As part of an attempt to increase ABCL's boot performance,
30    the ability for a FASL to contain an arbitrary number of functions was
31    broken. The old behaviour is now restored. There was no notable difference
32    in startup times.
33  </dd>
34  <dt>Improved support for embedding: ABCL no longer
35    contains calls to System.exit().
36  </dt>
37  <dd>Instead of calling System.exit(), ABCL now throws one of two Errors.
38    When the EXT:EXIT or EXT:QUIT functions are called, it throws
39    org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated. If an unrecoverable integrity
40    error is encountered, it throws an org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError
41  </dd>
42  <dt>Updated ASDF2</dt>
43  <dd>ASDF2 has been updated to its latest version 2.012</dd>
44  <dt>Experimental support for the long form of DEFINE-METHOD-COMBINATION</dt>
45  <dd>Support for the long form of DEFINE-METHOD-COMBINATION has been added,
46    however, this support is derived from Sacla and XCL, which probably means
47    that the code hasn't been excercised all that much and does contain
48    bugs.  You're strongly urged to help debug and define test-cases in order
49    to fix any issues in the code.</dd>
50  <dt>Extended class file writer: now with support for writing interfaces
51  </dt>
52  <dd>The new class file writer from the last release was specifically
53    targetted at generating class-defining class files.  It has now been
54    extended to allow generating interface files.
