9* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
10  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
11
12* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
13  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
14
15* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface
16  for the creation of Java interfaces as serialized by the new
17  classwriter code.  An example of use can be found in
18  "examples/misc/dynamic-interfaces.lisp".
19
20* [svn r13087] Upgraded to ASDF-2.012

25
26* [svn r13135] Fix the problem that FASLs can contain
27  a limited number of functions.
28
29* [svn r13117][ticket #117] Fix stack inconsistency error.
30
31* [svn r13018][ticket #114] Fix strange backtrace growth.
32
33* [svn r13105] Fix Pathname.java failing to find boot.lisp in an
34  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
35  servlet container.
36
37* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
38  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
39  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).
40
41* [svn r13094] Eliminate flushes after every character in
42  javax.scripting support.
43
44* [svn r13090] Make --batch exit, use Lisp.exit() in places where
45  applicable so that the streams are flushed, hence allowing --eval
46  output to be flushed.
47
48* [svn r13088] Fix algorithim error in writing byte sequences via
49  RandomAccessCharacterFile.  Found and fixed by David Kirkman.

52Changes
53-------
54
55* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
56  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
57  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
58  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
59
60* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
61  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
62  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
63  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
64
65* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
66
67* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
68  specifying URI escaping rules.
69
70* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown
71  from the Interpreter, storing the originating Java error in the
72  "cause" field if the cause is a subclass of JAVA_EXCEPTION.

84  incurring the entire interpreter startup time.
85
86* [svn r13506] Fix probles with loading FASLs in directories
87  containing whitespace characters.
88 
89  We now require all PATHNAME objects constructed via a namestring
90  containing the "file" scheme to be URI encoded according to
91  RFC3986.

273* [svn r12636] Java class verification error when compiling PROGV
274    in a context wanting an unboxed return value (typically a
275    logical expression).
276
277* [svn r12635] ABCL loads stale fasls instead of updated source
278    even when LOAD is called with a file name without extension.

281    returned as characters from CODE-CHAR.
282
283* [ticket #93] Reader doesn't handle zero returned values from

288
289* [ticket #86] No restarts available to kill a thread, if none
290    bound by user code.
291

313    unhandled conditions drop to debugger.
314
315* [svn r12675] '--nosystem' commandline option inhibits loading of
316    'system.lisp'.
317

331  command to disassemble compiled functions.
332
333* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
334  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common
335  Lisp", Proc. of the 2007 International Lisp Conference.

338  translations for system Lisp source and the root of the Java package
339  structure, respectively.
340
341* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
342  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
343  and the number of generated classes.
344
345* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
346  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
347  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
348  under Windows in its present state.
349
350* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
351
352* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
353  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
354  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
355  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
356
357  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
358
359  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
360  jar.
361
362  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
363
364  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
365
366  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
367  hierarchical entries.

381
382* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
383  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
384
385* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
386  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
387  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
388
389* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
390
391* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
392  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
393
394* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
395  interprets the drive letter.
396
397* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
398  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
399
400* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
401  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
402  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
403
404  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
405  pathname.
406
407* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
408  'abcl.bat' script.
409
410* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
411  Paul Griffionen).
412
413* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
414  Blake McBride).
415
416* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
417  for its PATHNAME member.
418
419* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
420  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
421
422* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
423  lambda inlining.
424
425* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
426  (Alan Ruttenberg).
427
428* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
429  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
430
431* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
432
433* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
434
435* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
436
437* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
438  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.
439
440* [svn r12395] Improve arglist display for SLIME (Matthias Hölzl).
441
442* [svn r12394] Optimize array utilization in closures.
443
444* [svn r12393] Optimize array functions in compiler which don't
445  require clearing the VALUES array.
446
447* [svn r12392] Optimize/normalize aspects of boot.lisp
448
449* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.

452Other
453-----
454
455* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
456  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
457
458* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
459  contain the Lisp build instructions.
460
461* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
462  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
463  metaclass.
464
465* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
466  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
467
468* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
469  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
470
471* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
472  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
473
474* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
475  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
476  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
477  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
478  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
479
480* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
481  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
482  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
483  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
484  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
485  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
486  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
487  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
488  exists) references the "inner jar".
489
490* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
491  necessary for creating releases.
492
493* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
494  the operator to LET* forms.
495
496* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
497  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
498
499* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
500  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
501  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
502  once they have been fixed.
503
504* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
505  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
506  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
507  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
508  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
509
510*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
511
512   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
513     inheritance.
514
515   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
516     of jar pathnames.
517
518* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
519  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
520  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
521
522* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
523  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
524  function object.
