51 Summary of changes:
52  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
53     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
54  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
55  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
56  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
57  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
58     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
59  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
60  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
61  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
62     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
63  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
64  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
65  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
66  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
67  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
68     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
69  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
70  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
71      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
72      being EQ
73  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)
