109
110Fixes
111-----
112
113* [svn r13229] Remove non-existing THREAD-LOCK and THREAD-UNLOCK from autoloads.
114
115* [svn 13228] Fix incorrect elimination of named local functions
116  declared inline when they're actually reified in the flet/labels body.
117
118* [svn r13217] Forward-referenced classes work properly now.
119
120* [svn r13209] Add initarg checking to REINITIALIZE-INSTANCE.
121
122* [svn r13204] FINALIZE-INHERITANCE is (more) AMOP compatible.
123
124* [svn r13203] Create ATOMIC-DEFGENERIC macro, in order to eliminate
125  FMAKUNBOUND calls and the resulting windows where no function is bound to
126  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.
127
128* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
129  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
130  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
131  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
132  used to create them.
133
134* [svn r13196] Provide more context regarding the reason of autoloading.
135  Note: This change *hugely* helps debugging.

138  loaded from 'format.lisp'.
139
140* [svn r13188] Fix DEFSTRUCT trying to generate accessors named NIL
141
142* [svn r13187] Fix #125: FASL reader should not convert symbol

164--------
165
166* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
167  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.
168
169* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
170  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
171
172* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface
173  for the creation of Java interfaces as serialized by the new
174  classwriter code.  An example of use can be found in

191  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
192  servlet container.
193
194* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
195  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
196  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).

198* [svn r13094] Eliminate flushes after every character in
199  javax.scripting support.
200
201* [svn r13090] Make --batch exit, use Lisp.exit() in places where

206  RandomAccessCharacterFile.  Found and fixed by David Kirkman.

210-------
211
212* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
213  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
214  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
215  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
216
217* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
218  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
219  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
220  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
221
222* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
223
224* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
225  specifying URI escaping rules.
226
227* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown
228  from the Interpreter, storing the originating Java error in the

248  RFC3986.

512  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
513
514  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
515
516  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
517  jar.

558  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
559  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
560
561  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
562  pathname.
563
564* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows

574  for its PATHNAME member.
575
576* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
577  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.

580  lambda inlining.

585* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
586  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
587
588* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
589

591
592* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
593

609Other
610-----
611
612* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
613  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
614
615* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
616  contain the Lisp build instructions.
617
618* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
619  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
620  metaclass.
621
622* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
623  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
624
625* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
626  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
627
628* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
629  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
630
631* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
632  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
633  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
634  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
635  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
636
637* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
638  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
639  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
640  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
641  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
642  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
643  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
644  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
645  exists) references the "inner jar".
646
647* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
648  necessary for creating releases.
649
650* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
651  the operator to LET* forms.
652
653* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
654  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
655
656* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
657  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
658  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
659  once they have been fixed.
660
661* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
662  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
663  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
664  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
665  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
666
667*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
668
669   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
670     inheritance.
671
672   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
673     of jar pathnames.
674
675* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
676  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
677  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
678
679* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
680  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
681  function object.
