Version 0.14.0
(?? Apr, 2009)
svn://common-lisp.net/project/armedbear/svn/tags/0.14.0/abcl
Summary of changes:
* Increased clarity on licensing (Classpath exception
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 return value type of ACOS with complex argument
* fixed precision of multiplication of complex values
* fixed use of COMPILE inside file compilation (i.e. COMPILE-FILE)
* 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
