(14 Feburary 2013)

  * All reported errors with the MOP implementation have been addressed.

  * An autoloader for SETF expansion functions has been implemented,
    eliminating the errors associated with not being able to use (SETF
    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
--------

126
127
  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
     Schlatte (@rudi)
128
129

  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
130
     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
131
132
133
134
135
136

     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 
137
        Quite possible with local patches 
138
     ** CFFI 
139
140
       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
141
     ** HUNCHENTOOT 
142
143
144
       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
     ** CXML
        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
145
146
147
148
149
  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler 

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

150
151
     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
     ** large objects (?!?)
152

153
  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
154

155
156
157
    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
    defaults.
158
159
  
    ** Fields
160
    *** getter/setters 
161
    ** Annotations
162
163
164
165


  * ASDF

166
167
168
     ** Stock ASDF-2.26.6 which includes #+abcl conditional patches
        for the URL-PATHAME and JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions
        to ANSI.

  *  ABCL-CONTRIB

     ** 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]
186
    
187
         Extensive bugfixing wrt. method resolution [#229]
188

189
190
191
192
      ** JFLI

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.

369
370
371
372
373
374
375
Features
--------

 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host

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

376
377
378
379
380
 * 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.
381
382

Changes
-------

385
 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
386
387
388
389
390
391

 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

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

392
393
394
395
396
397
398
399
400
401
 * 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

402
403
404
405
406
 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
   report the expected (range) of arguments

 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017

407
408
409
410
411
412
413
414
415
 * 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.  

416
417
418
419
*  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.

420
421
422
423
 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

Fixes
-----

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

  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.

1001
1002
  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
  and the number of generated classes.

1003
* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
1004
1005
1006
  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.
1007

1008
* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
1009

1010
* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested
1011
1012
  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
1013
1014
  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".

1015
  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
1016

1017
  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
1018
  jar.
1019

1020
  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
1021

1022
  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
1023
1024
1025
1026

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

  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
1127
  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1128
1129
1130
1131

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

1132
* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1133
1134
1135
1136
  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_".
1137

1138
* [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:
1169

1170
1171
   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
     inheritance.

1174
1175
1176
1177
   + [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
1178
  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1179
1180
1181
1182

* [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.

  * Resolved infinite recursion on TRACEing the compiler
  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting

     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

     (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
