Subject: sbcl-1.1.5 released
Newsgroups: gmane.lisp.steel-bank.announce
Date: Tuesday 26th February 2013 13:18:02 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Dear all,

I've just released sbcl-1.1.5 in git and to sourceforge; as usual,
binaries for various platforms will trickle in over the next few days.
The release notes are appended to this message.

Best wishes,

Christophe

changes in sbcl-1.1.5 relative to sbcl-1.1.4:
  * minor incompatible change: SB-SPROF:WITH-PROFILING no longer loops
    by default.
  * new feature: package local nicknames. See manual for details.
  * new feature: SB-EXT:MAP-DIRECTORY provides a powerful interface for
    directory traversal: it is the backend used by SBCL for CL:DIRECTORY.
  * enhancement: easier to use restarts for resolving name-conflicts
    resulting from IMPORT, EXPORT, or USE-PACKAGE.
  * enhancement: variant DEFPACKAGE forms now signal a full error with
    restarts provided for resolving the situation. (lp#891351)
  * enhancement: by setting SB-EXT:*ON-PACKAGE-VARIANCE* appropriately
variant
    DEFPACKAGE forms can now signal a full error with restarts provided for
    resolving the situation. See manual for details. (lp#891351)
  * enhancement: make-random-state now uses CryptGenRandom as a seed on
Windows.
    (Thanks to Anton Kovalenko.) (lp#1102748)
  * enhancement: backtrace improvements
    ** secondary CLOS dispatch functions have better debug names
(lp#503081)
    ** easier to read method names in backtraces. See
       SB-DEBUG:*METHOD-FRAME-STYLE*.
    ** SB-DEBUG:PRINT-BACKTRACE and SB-DEBUG:LIST-BACKTRACE are available
as
       forwards-compatible replacements for SB-DEBUG:BACKTRACE and
       SB-DEBUG:BACKTRACE-AS-LIST.
    ** SB-DEBUG:*SHOW-ENTRY-POINT-DETAILS** has been deprecated, as the
same
       information is available in less intrusive form as frame
annotations.
  * enhancement: SB-POSIX now provides MAP-ANON.
  * enhancement: test-suite results are colorized, failures in red,
unexpected
    success in green. Works on Windows and on terminals with ANSI escape
code
    support. Can be disabled with --no-color.
  * optimization: SB-CONCURRENCY:QUEUE implementation is more efficient.
    (thanks to James M. Lawrence)
  * bug fix: no more unused variable style warnings from RESTART-CASE
    macroexpansion (lp#1113859)
  * bug fix: no more unused variable style warnings when loading
    sb-bsd-sockets.asd (lp#1114681)
  * bug fix: deleting a package removes it from implementation-package
    lists of other packages.
  * bug fix: SB-SPROF:WITH-PROFILING is now usable in the Slime REPL on
Darwin.
    This does not fix the occasional "interrupt already pending" issue,
though.
  * bug fix: (setf (documentation 'x 'function)) and
    (setf (documentation #'x t)) set documentation in different places.
    (regression since 1.0.43.63)
  * bug fix: build on newer glibc. (lp#1095036)
