24-------
25
26  * Updated ASDF to 2.019
27
28  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
29    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.
30
31  * 'abcl.properties.in' now contains examples of optimizing the ABCL
32    wrapper script for 64bit instances for Java7 and for Java6. 
33
34  * [r13720] Randomize string hash computation to guard against
35    exploits.
36
37  * [r13723] New internal API in Package.java for looking up internal
38    vs. external symbols.
39
40Fixes
41-----
42
43  * [#181][r13718] The implementation now correctly loads ASDF definitions
44    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
45    mechanism from working.
46
47  * [#177] Made the mechanism for locating the abcl-contrib archive
48    more robust
49
50  * [#177] LIST-DIRECTORY no longer ignores :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS

91Features
92--------
93
94 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
95
96 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
97
98 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
99   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
100   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
101   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
102   CLASSPATH.
103
104Changes
105-------
106
107 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
108
109 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
110
111 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
112   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
113
114 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
115   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
116
117 * Compiler clean-ups
118
119 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
120   to *always* create a closure
121
122 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
123
124 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
125   report the expected (range) of arguments
126
127 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
128
129 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
130
131 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
132   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
133   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
134   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
135   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
136   dependencies. 
137
138*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
139   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
140   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
141
142 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
143   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.
144

349  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.
350
351* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
352  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
353  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
354  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
355  used to create them.

414  "unpacked JAR" situation found by running ABCL in the Glassfish v3
415  servlet container.
416
417* [svn r13096] For arrays, add initialization with the default value
418  of the element type if neither INITIAL-ELEMENT nor INITIAL-CONTENT
419  have been specified.  Found by: dmalves_ (freenode irc nick).

422  javax.scripting support.
423

434
435* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
436  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
437  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
438  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
439
440* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
441  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
442  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
443  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.
444
445* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.
446
447* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
448  specifying URI escaping rules.

656
657* [svn r12635] ABCL loads stale fasls instead of updated source
658    even when LOAD is called with a file name without extension.

694
695* [svn r12675] '--nosystem' commandline option inhibits loading of
696    'system.lisp'.

719  structure, respectively.
720
721* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
722  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
723  and the number of generated classes.
724
725* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
726  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
727  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
728  under Windows in its present state.
729
730* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
731
732* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
733  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
734  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
735  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".
736
737  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
738
739  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
740  jar.
741
742  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
743
744  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
745
746  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
747  hierarchical entries.

761
762* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
763  of control (within-java-function jump targets)
764
765* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
766  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
767  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!
768
769* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
770
771* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
772  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
773
774* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
775  interprets the drive letter.
776
777* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
778  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
779
780* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
781  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
782  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.
783
784  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
785  pathname.
786
787* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
788  'abcl.bat' script.
789
790* [svn r12437] CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is the upper execlusive limit (found by
791  Paul Griffionen).
792
793* [svn r12436] Describe formatting was missing a newline (reported by
794  Blake McBride).
795
796* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
797  for its PATHNAME member.
798
799* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
800  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.

802* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
803  lambda inlining.
804
805* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
806  (Alan Ruttenberg).
807
808* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
809  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.
810
811* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.
812
813* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.
814
815* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.
816
817* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
818  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.

833-----
834
835* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
836  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
837
838* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
839  contain the Lisp build instructions.
840
841* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
842  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
843  metaclass.
844
845* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
846  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
847
848* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
849  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
850
851* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
852  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
853
854* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
855  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
856  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
857  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
858  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
859
860* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
861  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
862  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
863  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
864  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
865  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
866  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
867  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
868  exists) references the "inner jar".
869
870* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
871  necessary for creating releases.
872
873* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
874  the operator to LET* forms.
875
876* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
877  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
878
879* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
880  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
881  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
882  once they have been fixed.
883
884* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
885  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
886  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
887  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
888  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
889
890*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
891
892   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
893     inheritance.
894
895   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
896     of jar pathnames.
897
898* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
899  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
900  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
901
902* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
903  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
904  function object.

1130 Summary of changes:
1131 -------------------
1132  * Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
1133     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
1134  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
1135  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
1136  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
1137  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
1138     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
1139  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
1140  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
1141  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
1142     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
1143  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()
1144  * fix return value type of ACOS with complex argument
1145  * fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
1146  * fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
1147  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
1148     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
1149  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
1150  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
1151      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
1152      being EQ
1153  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)

1167  * More efficient code emission in the compiler
1168  * Ant build targets for testing (abcl.test)
1169  * Use ConcurrentHashMap to store the lisp threads for increased performance
1170  * Fix adjustability of expressly adjustable arrays (ticket #28)
1171  * Fix calculation of upperbound on ASH in the compiler
1172     (don't calculate numbers too big, instead, return '*')
1173  * Introduce LispInteger as the super type of Bignum and Fixnum
1174  * Boxing/unboxing for SingleFloat and DoubleFloat values,
1175      inclusive of unboxed calculations
1176  * Fixed URL decoding bug in loadCompiledFunction (use java.net.URLDecoder)

1178  * Inlining of simple calculations (+/-/*)
1179  * All static fields declared 'final'
1180  * Add support for java.lang.Long based on Bignum to our FFI
