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

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

* Fix incorrect dead code elimination

  Additionally, don't recurse into flet/labels upon elimination of a

* Numeric tower repairs on promoting floats across representation
  boundaries [r14749-50] (Massimiliano Ghilardi).

Version 1.3.1
=============
http://abcl.org/svn/tags/1.3.1/
317
30-APR-2014
318 319 320

## Fixed

321 322 323 324 325
*  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>

326 327 328 329 330 331
*  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>
332

333
*  Update to ASDF 3.1.0.103.
334
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14661>
335 336 337 338

   Fixes loading of Ironclad and other Quicklisp systems.

*  Fix Uniform Naming Convention (aka "UNC" or "network") paths under Windows.
339
   <http://abcl.org/trac/changeset/14659>
340 341 342 343 344 345 346 347 348 349 350 351 352 353 354 355 356 357 358 359 360 361 362 363 364 365 366 367

   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.

378 379
## Features

380
*  Make LispStackFrame.UNAVAILABLE_ARG a singleton object,
381
   and lazily create the little used portions of the Lisp stack.
382

383 384 385
    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.

    LispStackFrame object are allocated on every
390 391 392 393 394 395 396 397 398
    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.
399 400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407 408

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

*  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

419 420
*  SYS:SHA256 audited

421 422 423
    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
428

429
    The Netbeans IDE configuration now includes a way to connect to
430 431
    the running-under-jdb ABCL via SLIME.  One needs a version of
    SLIME able to be loaded from its 'swank.asd' definition.  
432

433 434 435 436
* 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

442 443 444 445 446 447 448 449 450 451
*  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.

Features
--------

569 570
  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
     Schlatte (@rudi)
571 572

  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
573
     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
574 575 576 577 578 579

     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 
580
        Quite possible with local patches 
581
     ** CFFI 
582 583
       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
584
     ** HUNCHENTOOT 
585 586 587
       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
     ** CXML
        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
588 589 590 591 592
  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler 

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

593 594
     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
     ** large objects (?!?)
595

596
  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
597

598 599 600
    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
    defaults.
601 602
  
    ** Fields
603
    *** getter/setters 
604
    ** Annotations
605 606 607 608


  * ASDF

609 610 611
     ** Stock ASDF-2.26.6 which includes #+abcl conditional patches
        for the URL-PATHAME and JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions
        to ANSI.
612 613 614 615 616 617 618 619 620 621 622 623 624 625 626 627 628

  *  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]
629
    
630
         Extensive bugfixing wrt. method resolution [#229]
631

632 633 634 635
      ** JFLI

         A "captured from the wild" version of what @rich.hickey did before Clojure.

(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.

  * '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
-----

807 808
Version 0.27.0
==============
809
svn.uri="http://abcl.org/svn/tags/0.27.0/"
810 811


812 813 814 815 816 817 818
Features
--------

 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host

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

819 820 821 822 823
 * 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.
824 825 826 827

Changes
-------

828
 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
829 830 831 832 833 834

 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output

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

835 836 837 838 839 840 841 842 843 844
 * 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

845 846 847 848 849
 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
   report the expected (range) of arguments

 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017

850 851 852 853 854 855 856 857 858
 * 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.  

859 860 861 862
*  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.

863 864 865 866
 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

   a PRINT-NOT-READABLE error anymore

 * Fixed SYNTAX.SHARP-BACKSLASH.6 and SYNTAX.SHARP-BACKSLASH.7

 * Fixed many PPRINT.* test suite failures

Fixes
-----

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

* [svn 13228] Fix incorrect elimination of named local functions
  declared inline when they're actually reified in the flet/labels body.

* [svn r13217] Forward-referenced classes work properly now.

* [svn r13209] Add initarg checking to REINITIALIZE-INSTANCE.

* [svn r13204] FINALIZE-INHERITANCE is (more) AMOP compatible.

* [svn r13203] Create ATOMIC-DEFGENERIC macro, in order to eliminate
  FMAKUNBOUND calls and the resulting windows where no function is bound to
  symbols which are the most essential building blocks in CLOS/AMOP.

* [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.

* [svn r13102] More type-conversion helpers in JAVA package:
  LIST-FROM-JARRAY, VECTOR-FROM-JARRAY, and LIST-FROM-JENUMERATION.
1115 1116 1117 1118 1119 1120

* [svn r13078] JVM::MAKE-CLASS-INTERFACE-FILE provides an interface

1439 1440 1441
  translations for system Lisp source and the root of the Java package
  structure, respectively.

1442
* [svn r12505] All calls to anonymous functions and local functions that have
1443 1444 1445
  been declared inline are now converted to LET* forms, reducing stack usage
  and the number of generated classes.

1446
* [svn r12487] An initial port ASDF-INSTALL now forms the first ABCL
1447 1448 1449
  contrib.  Such contribs are optionally built by the Ant target

  "jar:URL!/JAR-ENTRY".

1458
  The loading ASDF systems from jar files is now possible.
1459

1460
  SYS:PATHNAME-JAR-P predicate signals whether a pathname references a
1461
  jar.
1462

1463
  NB: jar pathnames do *not* currently work as an argument to OPEN.
1464

1465
  SYS:UNZIP implemented to unpack ZIP files.
1466 1467 1468 1469

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

1470 1471 1472
* [svn r12450] Collect unprocessed command-line arguments in
  EXT:*COMMAND-LINE-ARGUMENT-LIST* (Dennis Lambe Jr.)

1473 1474 1475 1476 1477 1478 1479 1480 1481
* [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
-------------------
1482

1483 1484 1485

1490
* [svn r12485] Pathnames starting with "." can now have TYPE.
1491

1492

1496
  interprets the drive letter.

  manifest (found by Paul Griffionen).
1500

1501 1502
* [svn r12441] ZipCache now caches all references to ZipFiles based on
  the last-modified time for local files.  Remote files are always
1503 1504
  retrieved due to problems in the underlying JVM code.

1505 1506
  SYS:REMOVE-ZIP-CACHE implements a way to invalidate an entry given a
  pathname.
1507

1508 1509

  'abcl.bat' script.
1510

  for its PATHNAME member.

1520 1521
* [svn r14222] MERGE-PATHNAMES no longer potentially shares structure
  between its result and *DEFAULT-PATHNAME-DEFAULTS*.
1522 1523 1524 1525 1526

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

* [svn r12417] [ticket:83] Fix TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME regression.
1527 1528
  (Alan Ruttenberg).

1529 1530 1531 1532 1533 1534 1535 1536 1537 1538 1539 1540
* [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.

  require clearing the VALUES array.

* [svn r12392] Optimize/normalize aspects of boot.lisp

* [svn r12391] Prevent duplicated subclasses form occuring.


Other
-----

1556
* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
1557 1558 1559 1560 1561 1562 1563 1564 1565 1566 1567 1568 1569
  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
1570
  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1571 1572 1573 1574

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

1575
* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1576 1577 1578 1579
  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_".
1580

1581
* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
1582 1583 1584 1585 1586 1587 1588 1589 1590 1591 1592 1593 1594 1595 1596 1597 1598 1599 1600 1601 1602 1603 1604 1605 1606 1607 1608 1609 1610 1611
  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:

1613 1614
   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
     inheritance.
1615

1616 1617 1618 1619 1620
   + [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
1621
  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1622 1623 1624 1625

* [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.
