40--------
41
42 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
43
44 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
45
46 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
47   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
48   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
49   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
50   CLASSPATH.
51
52Changes
53-------
54
55 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
56
57 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
58
59 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
60   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
61
62 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
63   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
64
65 * Compiler clean-ups
66
67 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
68   to *always* create a closure
69
70 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
71
72 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
73   report the expected (range) of arguments
74
75 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
76
77 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
78
79 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
80   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
81   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
82   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
83   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
84   dependencies. 
85
86*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
87   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
88   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
89
90 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
91   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.
92

298
299* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
300  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
301  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able

362  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
363  servlet container.
364
365* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
366  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
367  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).

370  javax.scripting support.
371

382
383* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
384  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
385  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
386  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
387
388* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
389  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
390  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
391  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
392
393* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
394
395* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
396  specifying URI escaping rules.
397
398* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown
399  from the Interpreter, storing the originating Java error in the

667  structure, respectively.
668
669* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
670  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
671  and the number of generated classes.
672
673* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
674  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
675  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
676  under Windows in its present state.
677
678* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
679
680* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
681  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
682  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
683  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
684
685  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
686
687  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
688  jar.
689
690  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
691
692  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
693
694  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
695  hierarchical entries.

709
710* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
711  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
712
713* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
714  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
715  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
716
717* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
718
719* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
720  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
721
722* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
723  interprets the drive letter.
724
725* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
726  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
727
728* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
729  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
730  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
731
732  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
733  pathname.
734
735* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
736  'abcl.bat' script.
737
738* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
739  Paul Griffionen).
740
741* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
742  Blake McBride).
743
744* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
745  for its PATHNAME member.
746
747* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
748  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
749
750* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
751  lambda inlining.
752
753* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
754  (Alan Ruttenberg).
755
756* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
757  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
758
759* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
760
761* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
762
763* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
764
765* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
766  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.

780Other
781-----
782
783* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
784  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
785
786* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
787  contain the Lisp build instructions.
788
789* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
790  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
791  metaclass.
792
793* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
794  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
795
796* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
797  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
798
799* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
800  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
801
802* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
803  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
804  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
805  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
806  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
807
808* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
809  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
810  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
811  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
812  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
813  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
814  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
815  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
816  exists) references the "inner jar".
817
818* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
819  necessary for creating releases.
820
821* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
822  the operator to LET* forms.
823
824* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
825  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
826
827* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
828  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
829  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
830  once they have been fixed.
831
832* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
833  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
834  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
835  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
836  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
837
838*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
839
840   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
841     inheritance.
842
843   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
844     of jar pathnames.
845
846* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
847  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
848  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
849
850* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
851  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
852  function object.

1096     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
1097  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
1098  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
1099      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
1100      being EQ
1101  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)
