232* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
233  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common
234  Lisp", Proc. of the 2007 International Lisp Conference.

237  translations for system Lisp source and the root of the Java package
238  structure, respectively.
239
240* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
241  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
242  and the number of generated classes.
243
244* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
245  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
246  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
247  under Windows in its present state.
248
249* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
250
251* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
252  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
253  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
254  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
255
256  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
257
258  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
259  jar.
260
261  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
262
263  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
264
265  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
266  hierarchical entries.

280
281* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
282  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
283
284* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
285  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
286  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
287
288* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
289
290* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
291  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
292
293* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
294  interprets the drive letter.
295
296* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
297  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
298
299* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
300  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
301  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
302
303  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
304  pathname.
305
306* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
307  'abcl.bat' script.
308
309* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
310  Paul Griffionen).
311
312* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
313  Blake McBride).
314
315* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
316  for its PATHNAME member.
317
318* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
319  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
320
321* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
322  lambda inlining.
323
324* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
325  (Alan Ruttenberg).
326
327* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
328  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
329
330* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
331
332* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
333
334* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
335
336* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
337  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
338
339* [svn r12395] Improve arglist display for SLIME (Matthias Hölzl).
340
341* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.

343* [svn r12393] Optimize array functions in compiler which don't
344  require clearing the VALUES array.

351Other
352-----
353
354* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
355  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
356
357* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
358  contain the Lisp build instructions.
359
360* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
361  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
362  metaclass.
363
364* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
365  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
366
367* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
368  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
369
370* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
371  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
372
373* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
374  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
375  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
376  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
377  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
378
379* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
380  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
381  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
382  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
383  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
384  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
385  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
386  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
387  exists) references the "inner jar".
388
389* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
390  necessary for creating releases.
391
392* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
393  the operator to LET* forms.
394
395* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
396  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
397
398* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
399  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
400  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
401  once they have been fixed.
402
403* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
404  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
405  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
406  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
407  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
408
409*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
410
411   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
412     inheritance.
413
414   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
415     of jar pathnames.
416
417* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
418  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
419  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
420
421* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
422  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
423  function object.

562  * 'build-from-lisp.sh' shell script (Tobias Rittweiler)
563  * New threading primitives aligned with Java/JVM constructs (Erik Huelsmann)
564
565      SYNCHRONIZED-ON
566      OBJECT-NOTIFY
567      OBJECT-NOTIFY-ALL
568  * THREADS package created to hold threads related primitives:
569

572      MAKE-THREAD-LOCK MAKE-THREAD INTERRUPT-THREAD
573
574      MAPCAR-THREADS
575
576      GET-MUTEX MAKE-MUTEX WITH-MUTEX RELEASE-MUTEX

579    now to be considered as deprecated, marked to be removed with
580    0.22
581  * Stacktraces now contain calls through Java code relevant to
582    debugging (Tobias Rittweiler)
583
584    Backtrace functionality been moved from EXT:BACKTRACE-AS-LIST to
585    SYS:BACKTRACE to mark this changes.  The methods SYS:FRAME-TO-STRING
586    and SYS:FRAME-TO-LIST can be used to inspect the new
587    LISP_STACK_FRAME and JAVA_STACK_FRAME objects
588  * Various stream input performance optimizations
589  * Fixed breakage when combining Gray streams and the pretty printer
590  * Performance improvements for resolution of non-recursive #=n and #n#

649 Summary of changes:
650 -------------------
651  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
652     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
653  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
654  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
655  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
656  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
657     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
658  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
659  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
660  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
661     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
662  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
663  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
664  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
665  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
666  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
667     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
668  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
669  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
670      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
671      being EQ
672  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)
