5     The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 19f.
6     This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7     bugfixes from the 19e release.
8    
9     CMUCL is a free, high performance implementation of the Common Lisp
10     programming language which runs on most major Unix platforms. It
11     mainly conforms to the ANSI Common Lisp standard. CMUCL provides a
12     sophisticated native code compiler; a powerful foreign function
13     interface; an implementation of CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System,
14     which includes multimethods and a metaobject protocol; a source-level
15     debugger and code profiler; and an Emacs-like editor implemented in
16     Common Lisp. CMUCL is maintained by a team of volunteers collaborating
17     over the Internet, and is mostly in the public domain.
18    
19     New in this release:
20    
21    
22     * Feature enhancements:
23    
24     * ANSI compliance fixes:
25 rtoy 1.3 - Fix bug in backquote printer. If the variable is @foo, we want
26     to print ", @foo" not ",@foo". Similarly, for .foo, we want to
27     print ", .foo" instead of ",.foo".
28 rtoy 1.5 - Fix merging of version in MAKE-PATHNAME. If the pathname name
29     is given, the version is not affected by the version in the
30     default pathname.
31 rtoy 1.1
32     * Bugfixes:
33 rtoy 1.3 - Compiler can now derive the rank of an array, even if the array
34     is not simple.
35     - Fix off-by-one bug in ~R which prevents printing numbers from
36     10^63 to 10^66-1. 10^63 is a vigintillion.
37     - The compiler and interpreter should now handle slot-value the
38     same. Previously, different results were returned for things
39     like (slot-value foo :a).
40 rtoy 1.4 - UNIX-GETGRNAM is now defined for Darwin (x86 and ppc).
41 rtoy 1.5 - UNIX-GETPWUID is defined for all BSD systems.
42     - Type-derivation for EXPT no longer causes errors in some
43     situations. The computed bounds were of the wrong type for the
44     resulting type specifier.
45     - Pathname printer no longer produces an error for (MAKE-PATHNAME
46     :HOST NIL :TYPE "foo"). It returns #P(:HOST NIL :TYPE "foo")
47     now.
48     - Type derivation for DOUBLE-DOUBLE-FLOAT arithmetic should be
49     working. Previously, all arithmetic operations would just
50     return DOUBLE-DOUBLE-FLOAT even though the compiler should have
51     been able to figure out a tighter result.
52 rtoy 1.6 - When SCALE-FLOAT would underflow, it would always return 0f0,
53     instead of a floating-point zero of the correct type.
54 rtoy 1.7 - Fix some issues in creating the debug arglist string when the
55     arglist contains items that can't be printed readably.
56 rtoy 1.1
57     * Trac Tickets:
58 rtoy 1.6 - #16: Read-time hash-table issue
59     Fixed.
60 rtoy 1.1
61     * Other changes:
62    
63     * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
64 rtoy 1.5 - The compiler and interpreter should handle SLOT-VALUE the same
65     way. Previously, (SLOT-VALUE obj :a) would behave differently
66     in the compiler and interpreter.
67 rtoy 1.9 - Some issues with get-accessor-method-function and
68     slot-value-using-class have been fixed.
69     Get-accessor-method-function was causing an error to be signaled
70     incorrectly.
71 rtoy 1.1
72 rtoy 1.3 * Changes to building procedure:
73 rtoy 1.1
74     This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
75 rtoy 1.3 19e; you will need to recompile FASL files.
76 rtoy 1.1
77     See <URL:http://www.cons.org/cmucl/> for download information,
78     guidelines on reporting bugs, and mailing list details.

81     We hope you enjoy using this release of CMUCL!
