Version 1.3.3
=============
http://abcl.org/svn/tags/1.3.3/
18-SEP-2015

Enhancements
------------

*  [r14802,r14813] Add character name for non-breaking space

   Use a human readable name for character 160, #\No-break_space,
   following sbcl, ccl and clisp. This permits the Quicklisp system
   spinneret to load.  The #\No-break_space name is a valid
   CHAR-NAME/NAME-CHAR pair, but is not emitted as a glyph under the
   current output encoding under the CL:FORMAT "~:c" directive as
   these implementations do by default.

   Thanks to Javier Olaechea.

Fixes
-----

* [r14808] CL:FILE-WRITE-DATE fixed for logical pathnames

* ANSI-TEST

** Update references to new git repository at
   <git+https://gitlab.common-lisp.net/ansi-test/ansi-test.git>

** ABCL now runs the git master consolidated ANSI-TEST suite which
   features subdirectories and distinquished value for
   *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.

** ABCL.TEST.ANSI:CLEAN-TESTS now acts recursively via appropiate
   Pathname wildcards to match new directory structure.

* ASDF

  Fix COMPILE-SYSTEM to offer full ANSI environment for ASDF and
  ABCL-CONTRIB. 

* ABCL-ASDF

** Use of Maven has been robustified.

*** [r14803] Fix usage with all known versions through maven-3.3.3

   Addresses <http://abcl.org/trac/ticket/390>.

*** [r14806] Fix usage with specifying local Maven repository

** More complete attempt at re-initialization via

        (ABCL-ASDF:INIT :force t)

Fixes
-----
* Fix failed AVER [#289] [r14763]

* Fix incorrect dead code elimination

Version 1.3.1
=============
http://abcl.org/svn/tags/1.3.1/
169
30-APR-2014
170 171 172

## Fixed

173 174 175 176 177
*  The underlying Java Function Interface (JFI) now converts CL:T and
   CL:NIL to JAVA:+TRUE+ and JAVA:+FALSE+.  Users who wish to
   reference a JAVA:+NULL+ should do so explicitly.
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14694>

178 179 180 181 182 183
*  Make JCALL work in more places.  Thanks to Olof-Joachim Frahm.
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14683>

*  Interpolate CL:SLEEP and THREADS:OBJECT-WAIT for timeouts below the
   Planck timer ("1ns") to a nanosecond.
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14679>
184

185
*  Update to ASDF 3.1.0.103.
186
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14661>
187 188 189 190

   Fixes loading of Ironclad and other Quicklisp systems.

*  Fix Uniform Naming Convention (aka "UNC" or "network") paths under Windows.
191
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14659>
192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219

   DIRECTORY now works again on UNC paths.

   UNC paths may be either specified with either back slash (#\\) or
   forward slash (#\/) doubled as the first character in a Pathname
   namestring.

   The patterns in

        //<server>/<share>/[directories-and-files]

   are parsed as

    <server> is stored as HOST.

    <share> is stored as DEVICE.

    [directories-and-files] gets parsed as per the normal rules under
    Windows.

   Mixing namestrings with both backslash and slash characters can
   lead to unpredictable results.  It is recommended not to use
   backslash characters in namestrings if it can be avoided.  The
   pathname printed representation is always normalized to using
   forward slash delimiters.


*  Find contrib based on system jar name.

Version 1.3.0
=============
227
http://abcl.org/svn/tags/1.3.0/
228

229

230 231
## Features

232
*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
233
   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
234

235 236 237
    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.
238

240

241
    LispStackFrame object are allocated on every
242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250
    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.
251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260

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

261
*  ASDF 3.0.1.94 shipped with the implementation
262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270

*  per function call stack and memory exception handler in CL:COMPILE

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

   [r14552]: http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14552

271 272
*  SYS:SHA256 audited

273 274 275
    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).

279
* Connect to NetBeans controlled JDWP via SLIME
280

281
    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
282 283
    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition.  
284

285 286 287 288
* 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)

## Compatibility

294 295 296 297 298 299 300 301 302 303
*  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.

304 305 306 307 308 309 310 311 312 313 314
## 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.

   the help!

   [ticket-328]: http://abcl.org/trac/ticket/328

*  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
   Harmon.

Features
--------

421 422
  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
     Schlatte (@rudi)
423 424

  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
425
     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
426 427 428 429 430 431

     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 
432
        Quite possible with local patches 
433
     ** CFFI 
434 435
       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
436

    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
    defaults.

(09 January 2012)

Changes
-------

  * Updated ASDF to 2.019

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

    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
-----

svn.uri="http://abcl.org/svn/tags/0.27.0/"
662 663


664 665 666 667 668 669 670
Features
--------

 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host

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

671 672 673 674 675
 * 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.
676 677 678 679

Changes
-------

680
 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
681 682 683 684 685 686

 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

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

687 688 689 690 691 692 693 694 695 696
 * 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

697 698 699 700 701
 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
   report the expected (range) of arguments

 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017

702 703 704 705 706 707 708 709 710
 * 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.  

711 712 713 714
*  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.

715 716 717 718
 * 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.

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

Features
--------
1282

1283 1284 1285 1286 1287 1288 1289 1290
* [svn r12518] *DISASSEMBLER* may now contain a hook which returns the
  command to disassemble compiled functions.

* [svn r12516] An implementation of user-extensible sequences as
  proposed in Christopher Rhodes, "User-extensible sequences in Common
  Lisp", Proc. of the 2007 International Lisp Conference.

1291 1292 1293
  translations for system Lisp source and the root of the Java package
  structure, respectively.

1294
* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
1295 1296 1297
  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
  and the number of generated classes.

1298
* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
1299 1300 1301
  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.
1302

1303
* [svn r12447] [ticket:80] REQUIRE now searches for ASDF systems.
1304

1305
* [svn r12422] Jar pathname support extensively re-worked and tested

  so that LOAD, PROBE-FILE, TRUENAME, DIRECTORY, and WRITE-FILE-DATE
  all work both for local and remote jar pathnames of the form
1308 1309
  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".

1310
  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
1311

1312
  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
1313
  jar.
1314

1315
  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
1316

1317
  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
1318 1319 1320 1321

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

1322 1323 1324
* [svn r12450] Collect unprocessed command-line arguments in
  EXT:*COMMAND-LINE-ARGUMENT-LIST* (Dennis Lambe Jr.)

1325 1326 1327 1328 1329 1330 1331 1332 1333
* [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
-------------------
1334

1335 1336 1337
* [svn r12526] Unbinding of PROGV bound variables on local transfer
  of control (within-java-function jump targets)

1338 1339 1340 1341
* [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!

1342
* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
1343

1344
* [svn r12484] FASLs containing "." characters not used to indicate
1345
  type (i.e. ".foo.bar.baz.abcl") can now be loaded.
1346

1347
* [svn r12422] Pathname.java URL contructor under Windows now properly
1348
  interprets the drive letter.
1349

1350 1351
* [svn r12449] The 'abcl.jar' produced by Netbeans now contains a valid
  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
1352

1353 1354
* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
1355 1356
  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.

1357 1358
  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
  pathname.
1359

1360 1361
* [svn r12439] Remove duplication of java options in Windows
  'abcl.bat' script.
1362

1363 1364

  for its PATHNAME member.

1372 1373
* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
1374 1375 1376 1377 1378

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

* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
1379 1380
  (Alan Ruttenberg).

1381 1382 1383 1384 1385 1386 1387 1388 1389 1390 1391 1392
* [svn r12412] Optimize memory efficiency of FORMAT by use of a
  hashtable rather than a CHAR-CODE-LIMIT array.

* [svn r12408] FIND-SYMBOL requires a  string argument.

* [svn r12400] Make NIL (as symbol) available to the compiler.

* [svn r12398] Move lambda list analysis to compile time where possible.

* [svn r12397] BROADCAST-STREAM obeys default external format fixing
  ANSI MAKE-BROADCAST-STREAM.8.

* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.


Other
-----

1408
* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
1409 1410 1411 1412 1413 1414 1415 1416 1417 1418 1419 1420 1421
  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
1422
  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1423 1424 1425 1426

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

1427
* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1428 1429 1430 1431
  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_".
1432

1433
* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
1434 1435 1436 1437 1438 1439 1440 1441 1442 1443 1444 1445 1446 1447 1448 1449 1450 1451 1452 1453 1454 1455 1456 1457 1458 1459 1460 1461 1462 1463
  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:
1464

1465 1466
   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
     inheritance.
1467

1468 1469 1470 1471 1472
   + [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
1473
  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1474 1475 1476 1477

* [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 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
1726
  * Code cleanup in EXPT to fix (EXPT <any-number> <Bignum>)
