10* [r15775] Update to jna-5.14.0 seemingly fixing problems with CFFI for at least arm64-openjdk-21
11
12* [r15774] Update to asdf-3.3.7
13
14* [r15760] (Tarn W. Burton) Add SETF for STREAM-ELEMENT-TYPE in
15  gray-streams module.
16
17* [r15759] (Tarn W. Burton) Add generic CL:PATHNAME and CL:TRUENAME in
18  gray-streams module.
19
20* [r15753] (Tarn W. Burton) Always return second value indicating EOF
21  in Gray stream version of CL:READ-LINE as per the ANSI
22  specification.
23
24* [r15743] (Tarn W. Burton) Add support for implementing
25  CL:INTERACTIVE-STREAM-P in for Gray streams. This is done via by
26  making CL:INTERACTIVE-STREAM-P a generic function when the Gray
27  streams module is required.
28
29* [r15742] (Tarn W. Burton) Add support for stream specific line
30  lengths.  This is done via the GRAY-STREAMS:STREAM-LINE-LENGTH
31  generic function which is only used when CL:*PRINT-RIGHT-MARGIN* is
32  NIL. The pretty printer and format have been updated to respect
33  these line lengths.
34
35* [r15741] (Tarn W. Burton) Add some missing default methods in the
36  Gray streams module.
37
38* [r15739] (Tarn W. Burton) Add support for implementing

462Enhancements
463------------
464
465* [r15305][r15306][r15307] The :NIO symbol is now present in
466  CL:*FEATURES*, denoting the use of java.nio.ByteBuffer et. al. in

469  keyword arguments useful in the construction of such arrays.
470
471* [r15280][r15283] The default implementation for CL:DISASSEMBLE has
472  been switched from jad to javap.  The SYS:CHOOSE-ASSEMBLER interface

490  values less than normalized floats.
491
492* [r15287] Attempts to fill specialized 32-bit arrays with elements
493   greater than 2^32-1 now properly signals a type error.
494     
495* [r15267] ABCL-BUILD:ANT/CALL no longer signals an error on failure
496  instead reporting associated error messages.
497
498* [r15281] Autoconfiguration for builds on supported platforms extended.
499
500* [r15290] The invocation of CL-BENCH now utilizes its ASDF definition.

1083## Features
1084
1085*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
1086   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
1087
1088    Aggressively cache and control the use of memory by the underlying
1089    Lisp stack frame representation by introducing the private
1090    LispThread.StackFrame and LispThread.StackSegments classes.
1091
1092    Contributed by Dmitry Nadezhin.
1093
1094    LispStackFrame object are allocated on every
1095    LispThread.execute(...) .  However, they are seldom [accessed]
1096    ([... verify via] inspect[tion of the] stack trace). This patch
1097    delays allocation of LispStackFrame? objects until they are
1098    requested.  Raw information about stack frames is stored in
1099    stack. Stack is an Object[] array (more precisely a list of [...]4
1100    [Mib] Object[] arrays).
1101
1102    ME: We are going to need a way to try to less agressively grab 4Mib
1103    chunks in low memory situations.
1104
1105    Memory profiling of ABCL shows that the classes with largest
1106    allocation count are org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame and
1107    org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame.UnavailableArgument.

1113
1114*  ASDF 3.0.1.94 shipped with the implementation
1115
1116*  per function call stack and memory exception handler in CL:COMPILE
1117
1118   Inline calls to jrun-exception-protected (used by handler-bind to
1119   catch out of memory conditions).  This commit saves generation
1120   roughly 50 cls files.

1122   [r14552]: http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14552
1123
1124*  SYS:SHA256 audited
1125
1126    The functionality if the SYS:SHA256 algorithim has been audited for
1127    use on inputs of single for files with recently shipping ORCL Java 7
1128    implementations (through jdk-1.7.0_51).

1130    [r14582]:  http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14582
1131
1132* Connect to NetBeans controlled JDWP via SLIME
1133
1134    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
1135    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
1136    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition. 
1137
1138* Install 'abcl.jar' and 'abcl-contrib.jar' locally as Maven artifacts
1139
1140    The Ant `abcl.mvn.install` target now installs build artifacts
1141    into the local Maven repository (Olof-Joachim Frahm)

1145## Compatibility
1146
1147*  CL:DIRECTORY
1148
1149   The implementation specific :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS argument to the ANSI
1150   DIRECTORY function has been changed to nil.  This implements
1151   behavior closer to SBCL and guarantees that a DIRECTORY operation
1152   will not signal a file error.

1157## Fixes
1158
1159*  Fix CL:SLEEP for intervals less than a millisecond. 
1160
1161   For intervals less than or equal to a nanosecond, including an
1162   interval of zero, the current thread merely yields execution to
1163   other threads.

1185   Instead of calling ABCL-ASDF:RESOLVE in both the ASDF COMPILE-OP
1186   and LOAD-OP, we now cache the result of invocation in COMPILE-OP
1187   and add this value in the LOAD-OP phase. Contributed by Cyrus

1282
1283  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
1284     Schlatte (@rudi)
1285
1286  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
1287     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
1288
1289     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
1290     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
1291     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.
1292
1293     ** CLOSER-MOP
1294        Quite possible with local patches
1295     ** CFFI

1303
1304     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
1305     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries. 
1306
1307     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
1308     ** large objects (?!?)
1309
1310  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
1311
1312    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
1313    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
1314    defaults.

1538 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
1539   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
1540   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally

1568
1569 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
1570
1571 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
1572   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
1573   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
1574   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
1575   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
1576   dependencies. 
1577
1578*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
1579   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
1580   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
1581
1582 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
1583   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

2131* [svn r12643] PATHNAME-JAR now properly references Windows drive
2132    letters on DEVICE other than the default.
2133
2134* [svn r12621] Missing 'build-from-lisp.sh' referenced in README now
2135    included in source release.

2163--------
2164
2165* [svn r12518] *DISASSEMBLER* may now contain a hook which returns the
2166  command to disassemble compiled functions.
2167
2168* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
2169  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common
2170  Lisp", Proc. of the 2007 International Lisp Conference.

2177  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
2178  and the number of generated classes.
2179
2180* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
2181  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
2182  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
2183  under Windows in its present state.
2184
2185* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
2186
2187* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
2188  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
2189  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
2190  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
2191
2192  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
2193
2194  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
2195  jar.
2196
2197  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
2198
2199  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
2200
2201  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
2202  hierarchical entries.
2203
2204* [svn r12450] Collect unprocessed command-line arguments in
2205  EXT:*COMMAND-LINE-ARGUMENT-LIST* (Dennis Lambe Jr.)

2216
2217* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
2218  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
2219
2220* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
2221  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
2222  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
2223
2224* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
2225
2226* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
2227  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
2228
2229* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
2230  interprets the drive letter.
2231
2232* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
2233  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
2234
2235* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
2236  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
2237  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
2238
2239  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
2240  pathname.
2241
2242* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
2243  'abcl.bat' script.
2244
2245* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
2246  Paul Griffionen).
2247
2248* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
2249  Blake McBride).
2250
2251* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
2252  for its PATHNAME member.
2253
2254* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
2255  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
2256
2257* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
2258  lambda inlining.
2259
2260* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
2261  (Alan Ruttenberg).
2262
2263* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
2264  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
2265
2266* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
2267
2268* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
2269
2270* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.

2287Other
2288-----
2289
2290* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
2291  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
2292
2293* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
2294  contain the Lisp build instructions.
2295
2296* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
2297  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
2298  metaclass.
2299
2300* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
2301  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
2302
2303* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
2304  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
2305
2306* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
2307  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
2308
2309* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
2310  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
2311  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
2312  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
2313  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
2314
2315* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
2316  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
2317  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
2318  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
2319  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
2320  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
2321  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
2322  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
2323  exists) references the "inner jar".
2324
2325* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
2326  necessary for creating releases.
2327
2328* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
2329  the operator to LET* forms.
2330
2331* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
2332  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
2333
2334* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
2335  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
2336  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
2337  once they have been fixed.
2338
2339* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
2340  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
2341  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
2342  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
2343  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
2344
2345*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
2346
2347   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
2348     inheritance.
2349
2350   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
2351     of jar pathnames.
2352
2353* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
2354  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
2355  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
2356
2357* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
2358  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
2359  function object.

2595 Summary of changes:
2596 -------------------
2597  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
2598     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
2599  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
2600  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
2601  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
2602  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
2603     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
2604  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
2605  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
2606  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
2607     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
2608  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
2609  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
2610  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
2611  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
2612  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
2613     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
2614  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
2615  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
2616      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
2617      being EQ
2618  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)

2628 -------------------
2629  * Separated J and ABCL into two trees
2630  * Many many compiler code cleanups
2631  * NetBeans project files
2632  * Support for CDR6 (See http://cdr.eurolisp.org/document/6/)
2633  * More efficient code emission in the compiler
2634  * Ant build targets for testing (abcl.test)
2635  * Use ConcurrentHashMap to store the lisp threads for increased performance
2636  * Fix adjustability of expressly adjustable arrays (ticket #28)
2637  * Fix calculation of upperbound on ASH in the compiler
2638     (don't calculate numbers too big, instead, return '*')
2639  * Introduce LispInteger as the super type of Bignum and Fixnum
2640  * Boxing/unboxing for SingleFloat and DoubleFloat values,
2641      inclusive of unboxed calculations
2642  * Fixed URL decoding bug in loadCompiledFunction (use java.net.URLDecoder)
2643  * Fixed line number counting
2644  * Inlining of simple calculations (+/-/*)
2645  * All static fields declared 'final'
2646  * Add support for java.lang.Long based on Bignum to our FFI
