## Features

14
*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
15
   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
16

17
18
19
    Aggressively cache and control the use of memory by the underlying
    Lisp stack frame representation by introducing the private
    LispThread.StackFrame and LispThread.StackSegments classes.

31
32
    LispThread.execute(...) .  However, they are seldom [accessed]
    ([... verify via] inspect[tion of the] stack trace). This patch
    delays allocation of LispStackFrame? objects until they are
    requested.  Raw information about stack frames is stored in
    stack. Stack is an Object[] array (more precisely a list of [...]4
    [Mib] Object[] arrays).

    ME: We are going to need a way to try to less agressively grab 4Mib
    chunks in low memory situations.

    Memory profiling of ABCL shows that the classes with largest
    allocation count are org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame and
    org.armedbear.lisp.LispStackFrame.UnavailableArgument.

   Inline calls to jrun-exception-protected (used by handler-bind to
   catch out of memory conditions).  This commit saves generation
   roughly 50 cls files.

*  SYS:SHA256 audited

55
56
57
    The functionality if the SYS:SHA256 algorithim has been audited for
    use on inputs of single for files with recently shipping ORCL Java 7
    implementations (through jdk-1.7.0_51).

* Connect to NetBeans controlled JDWP via SLIME
62

63
    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
64
65
    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition.

* Install 'abcl.jar' and 'abcl-contrib.jar' locally as Maven artifacts

    The Ant `abcl.mvn.install` target now installs build artifacts
    into the local Maven repository (Olof-Joachim Frahm)

*  CL:DIRECTORY 

   The implementation specific :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS argument to the ANSI
   DIRECTORY function has been changed to nil.  This implements
   behavior closer to SBCL and guarantees that a DIRECTORY operation
   will not signal a file error.

## Fixes

*  Fix CL:SLEEP for intervals less than a millisecond.  

   For intervals less than or equal to a nanosecond, including an
   interval of zero, the current thread merely yields execution to
   other threads.

*  cache Maven dependency resolution to avoid repeated lookups.

   Instead of calling ABCL-ASDF:RESOLVE in both the ASDF COMPILE-OP
   and LOAD-OP, we now cache the result of invocation in COMPILE-OP
   and add this value in the LOAD-OP phase. Contributed by Cyrus

    SYMBOL) without first invoking SYMBOL as a function. [#266

  * All outstanding regressions in the ANSI test suite with respect to
    abcl-1.0.1 have been fixed.
  
  * The ability to resolve Maven components in ASDF system definitions has been restored.

Features
--------

203
204
  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
     Schlatte (@rudi)
205
206

  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
207
     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
208
209
210
211
212
213

     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.

     ** CLOSER-MOP 
214
        Quite possible with local patches 
215
     ** CFFI 
216
217
       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
218
     ** HUNCHENTOOT 
219
220
221
       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
     ** CXML
        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
222
223
224
225
226
  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler 

     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries.  

227
228
     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
     ** large objects (?!?)
229

230
  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
231

232
233
234
    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
    defaults.
235
236
  
    ** Fields
237
    *** getter/setters 
238
    ** Annotations
239

243
244
245

     ** ABCL-ASDF 

        Network installation of binary artifacts named by Maven POM uris.

        *** checks at runtime if a given class is present in the
            accessible classloaders

        *** If the check for the presence of a class fails, find a
            maven-3.0.4 binary locally, execute its Aether connector
            to retrieve its transitive dependencies from the network.

      ** JSS 
         
         Java Syntax Sucks.  q.v [lsw2]

Changes
-------

  * Updated ASDF to 2.019

  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.

  * 'abcl.properties.in' now contains examples of optimizing the ABCL
    wrapper script for 64bit instances for Java7 and for Java6.  

  * [r13720] Randomize string hash computation to guard against
    exploits.

  * [r13723] New internal API in Package.java for looking up internal
    vs. external symbols.

Fixes
-----

  * [#181][r13718] The implementation now correctly loads ASDF definitions
    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
    mechanism from working.

  * [#177] Made the mechanism for locating the abcl-contrib archive
    more robust

  * [#177] LIST-DIRECTORY no longer ignores :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS

  * [r13706] Fix Streadm.readToken() bug reported by Blake McBride.

  * [#183][r13703] Move threads-jss.lisp out of system source to
    restore conditional recompilation logic.

446
447
448
449
450
451
452
Features
--------

 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host

 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)

453
454
455
456
457
 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
   CLASSPATH.
458
459

461

Changes
-------

462
 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
463
464
465
466
467
468

 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL

469
470
471
472
473
474
475
476
477
478
 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times

 * Compiler clean-ups

 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
   to *always* create a closure

 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups

479
480
481
482
483
 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
   report the expected (range) of arguments

 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017

484
485
486
487
488
489
490
491
492
 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.

 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
   dependencies.  

493
494
495
496
*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.

497
498
499
500
 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

* Ant target for generating Javadoc.

Fixes
-----

* [svn r13229] Remove non-existing THREAD-LOCK and THREAD-UNLOCK from autoloads.

* [svn r13200] Atomically swap generic functions into place of temporary
  DEFUNs for all standard-class slot accessors.
  Note: This addresses the recursive requirement to be able
  to allocate objects and classes while changing the functions
  used to create them.

* [svn r13196] Provide more context regarding the reason of autoloading.
  Note: This change *hugely* helps debugging.

* [svn r13189] Fix MACROEXPAND-ALL autoloader which should be
  loaded from 'format.lisp'.

* [svn r12513] Implement SYS:SRC and SYS:JAVA logical pathname
1073
1074
1075

  structure, respectively.

1076
* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
1077
1078
1079
  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
  and the number of generated classes.

1080
* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
1081
1082
1083
  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target
  'abcl.contrib'.  ASDF-INSTALL is not expected to work very well
  under Windows in its present state.
1084

1085
* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
1086

1087
* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
1088
1089
  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
1090
1091
  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".

1092
  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
1093

1094
  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
1095
  jar.
1096

1097
  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
1098

1099
  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
1100
1101
1102
1103

  SYS:ZIP now has a three argument version for creating zip files with
  hierarchical entries.

  from a Java byte array stream.

* [svn 12402] ABCL.TEST.LISP:RUN-MATCHING will now execute that subset
  of tests which match a string.

  of control (within-java-function jump targets)

1120
1121
1122
1123
* [svn r12510] The new ansi-test WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX.23 passes.
  Our with-standard-io-syntax implementation now correctly resets all necessary
  pprint variables. Patch by Douglas R. Miles, thanks for the contribution!

1124
* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
1125

1126
* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
1127
  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.

1130
  interprets the drive letter.
1131

1132
1133
* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
1134

1135
1136
* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
1137
1138
  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.

1139
1140
  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
  pathname.
1141

1142
1143

  Blake McBride).
1150

1151
1152

* [svn 12469] Ensure that FILE-ERROR always has a value (possibly NIL)
  for its PATHNAME member.

1154
1155

1159
1160

* [svn r12416] Fixed ANSI LAMBDA.nn test failures caused by errors in
  lambda inlining.

Other
-----

1190

1196
1197
1198
1199
1200
1201
1202
1203
  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.

* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
  contain the Lisp build instructions.

* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
  metaclass.

* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass

* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
1204
  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1205
1206
1207
1208

* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.

1209
* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1210
1211
1212
1213
  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
1214

1215
* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.

  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
  exists) references the "inner jar".

* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
  necessary for creating releases.

* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA …) as
  the operator to LET* forms.

* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.

* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
  once they have been fixed.

* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.

*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
1246

1247
1248
   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
     inheritance.
1249

1250
1251
1252
1253
1254
   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
     of jar pathnames.

* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
1255
  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1256
1257
1258
1259

* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
  function object.
