9* Add :resolve-symlinks keyword argument for DIRECTORY.
10
11* Support -- as a command line parameter for the REPL.
12
13* Preliminary support for Maven deployment.
14
15* Add an initargs cache for speedups in check-initargs. This should
16  make the initarg checking in CLOS quite a bit faster.
17
18* Incorporate output of 'svnversion' into LISP-IMPLEMENTATION-VERSION.
19
20* Ant target for generating Javadoc.

22Fixes
23-----
24
25* [svn r13229] Remove non-existing THREAD-LOCK and THREAD-UNLOCK from autoloads.
26
27* [svn 13228] Fix incorrect elimination of named local functions
28  declared inline when they're actually reified in the flet/labels body.
29
30* [svn r13217] Forward-referenced classes work properly now.
31
32* [svn r13209] Add initarg checking to REINITIALIZE-INSTANCE.
33
34* [svn r13204] FINALIZE-INHERITANCE is (more) AMOP compatible.
35
36* [svn r13203] Create ATOMIC-DEFGENERIC macro, in order to eliminate
37  FMAKUNBOUND calls and the resulting windows where no function is bound to
38  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.
39
40* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
41  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
42  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
43  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
44  used to create them.
45
46* [svn r13196] Provide more context regarding the reason of autoloading.
47  Note: This change *hugely* helps debugging.
48
49* [svn r13189] Fix MACROEXPAND-ALL autoloader which should be
50  loaded from 'format.lisp'.
51
52* [svn r13188] Fix DEFSTRUCT trying to generate accessors named NIL
53
54* [svn r13187] Fix #125: FASL reader should not convert symbol
55  case [Qi FASL loading issues].
56
57* [svn r13185] Fix #119: Incorrect dynamic environment for
58  evaluation of :CLASS allocation slot initforms.
59
60* [svn r13182-r13184] Fix error printing issues.
61
62* [svn r13181] Increase autoload verbosity: include FASLs too
63  (not only Java classes).

75Features
76--------
77
78* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
79  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
80
81* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
82  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
83
84* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface
85  for the creation of Java interfaces as serialized by the new
86  classwriter code.  An example of use can be found in
87  "examples/misc/dynamic-interfaces.lisp".
88
89* [svn r13087] Upgraded to ASDF-2.012

101
102* [svn r13105] Fix Pathname.java failing to find boot.lisp in an
103  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
104  servlet container.
105
106* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
107  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
108  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).
109
110* [svn r13094] Eliminate flushes after every character in
111  javax.scripting support.
112
113* [svn r13090] Make --batch exit, use Lisp.exit() in places where
114  applicable so that the streams are flushed, hence allowing --eval
115  output to be flushed.
116
117* [svn r13088] Fix algorithim error in writing byte sequences via
118  RandomAccessCharacterFile.  Found and fixed by David Kirkman.

121Changes
122-------
123
124* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
125  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
126  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
127  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
128
129* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
130  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
131  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
132  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
133
134* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
135
136* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
137  specifying URI escaping rules.
138
139* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown
140  from the Interpreter, storing the originating Java error in the
141  "cause" field if the cause is a subclass of JAVA_EXCEPTION.

541  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
542
543* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
544  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
545  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
546  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
547  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
548
549* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
550  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
551  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
552  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
553  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
554  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
555  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
556  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
557  exists) references the "inner jar".
558
559* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
560  necessary for creating releases.
561
562* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
563  the operator to LET* forms.
564
565* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
566  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
567
568* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
569  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
570  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
571  once they have been fixed.
572
573* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
574  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
575  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
576  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
577  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
578
579*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
580
581   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
582     inheritance.
583
584   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
585     of jar pathnames.
586
587* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
588  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
589  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
590
591* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
592  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
593  function object.

829  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
830  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
831     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
