* [svn r130103-r13107] Implemented JNULL_REF_P to distinguish a
  JAVA-OBJECT which contains a Java "null" from the Lisp NIL.

* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.

* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface
  for the creation of Java interfaces as serialized by the new
  classwriter code.  An example of use can be found in
  "examples/misc/dynamic-interfaces.lisp".

  javax.scripting support.
43
44
45
46
47

Changes
-------

55
56
57
58
* [svn r13141-13146,13156] Make ABCL a well behaving library to better
  support embedding: NEVER call System.exit() again.  Instead, ABCL now
  throws org.armedbear.lisp.ProcessingTerminated and
  org.armedbear.lisp.IntegrityError.
59
60
61
62
63
64

* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository
  to contain tools for developing ABCL in various states.  The first
  inhabitant is 'code-grapher.lisp' that provides a prototype to
  diagram a JVM instruction sequence via graphviz.

71
72
* [svn r13101] Reduced verbosity of the AbclScriptEngine.

* [svn r13097-13100] Slight refactoring of PATHNAME code, further
  specifying URI escaping rules.

* [svn r13091-2] Better error reporting for UnhandledCondition thrown
  from the Interpreter, storing the originating Java error in the
  "cause" field if the cause is a subclass of JAVA_EXCEPTION.

  containing the "file" scheme to be URI encoded according to
  RFC3986.

  structure, respectively.

341
* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
342
343
344
  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
  and the number of generated classes.

345
* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
346
347
348
  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target

  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
355
356
  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".

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

* [svn r12414] SYS::%GET-OUTPUT-STREAM-ARRAY returns a Lisp byte array
  from a Java byte array stream.

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


Fixes/Optimizations
-------------------
381

382
383
384

  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
399

400
401
* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on

404
405
  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
  pathname.
406

  'abcl.bat' script.
409

Other
-----

455

461
462
463
464
465
466
467
468
  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
469
  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
470
471
472
473

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

474
* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
475
476
477
478
  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_".
479

  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:
511

512
513
   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
     inheritance.
514

515
516
517
518
519
   + [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
520
  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
521
522
523
524

* [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.

     mentioned in COPYING, removed LICENSE)
  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
  * libabcl.so no longer created; it was solely about installing
     a SIGINT handler. Libraries should not do that.
  * boxing of LispObject descendants in JCALL/JCALL-RAW fixed
  * OpenBSD and NetBSD platform detection
  * fixed special bindings restores in compiled code for
     MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND/LET/LET*/PROGV and function bodies
  * introduced variadic list() function to replace list1() ... list9()

  * fix expansion of macros inside RESTART-CASE
     (fixes RESTART-CASE ANSI failures)
  * fix macroexpansion in the precompiler
  * Fixnum and Bignum now use a static factory method;
      constructors are now private -> increases chances of numbers
      being EQ
