SBCL 1.0.18 released

Postby findinglisp » Sun Jun 29, 2008 8:18 pm

Juho Snellman just announced that SBCL 1.0.18 has been released. From the announcement:

Source is available in SourceForge CVS and on the SourceForge File
Releases page.

changes in sbcl-1.0.18 relative to 1.0.17:
* minor incompatible change: SB-SPROF:WITH-PROFILING now by default
profiles only the current thread.
* minor incompatible change: changes to SYMBOL-VALUE of constants
defined with DEFCONSTANT now signal an error.
* enhancement: SB-SPROF now has support for wallclock profiling,
and is also able to profile specific threads. REPORT output
has also additional sorting options.
* enhancement: better pretty-printing of DEFPACKAGE forms. (Thanks
to Michael Weber)
* optimization: structure allocation has been improved
** constructors created by non-toplevel DEFSTRUCTs are ~40% faster.
** out of line constructors are ~10% faster.
** inline constructors are ~15% faster.
** inline constructors are capable of dynamic extent allocation
(generally on x86 and x86-64, in some cases on other platforms
as well.)
* optimization: simple uses of HANDLER-CASE and HANDLER-BIND no
longer cons.
* optimization: file compiler is now able to coalesce non-circular
lists, non-base strings, and bit-vectors. Additionally, constants
are never referenced through SYMBOL-VALUE at runtime.
* optimization: code defining methods on PRINT-OBJECT (and other
generic functions in the COMMON-LISP package) now loads faster.
* bug fix: EAI_NODATA is deprecated since RFC 3493. Stop using it
in sb-bsd-sockets.
* bug fix: if COMPILE-FILE aborts due to an unwind, the partial
fasl is now deleted. (reported by Attila Lendvai)
* bug fix: READ-LINE always returned NIL for the last line in files.
(reported by Yoshinori Tahara)
* bug fix: more accurate disassembly annotations of foreign function
calls. (thanks to Andy Hefner)
* bug fix: trimming non-simple strings and non-string string
designators when the there is nothing to trim works properly.
(thanks to James Knight)
* new feature: SB-POSIX bindings for mlockall, munlockall, and setsid.
(thanks to Travis Cross)
* fixed some bugs revealed by Paul Dietz' test suite:
** NIL is a valid function name (regression at 1.0.13.38)
** FILL on lists was missing its return value (regression at 1.0.12.27)
** STRING-TRIM, STRING-LEFT-TRIM, and STRING-RIGHT-TRIM did not respect
fill pointers properly (regression at 1.0.12.23)
** STRING-TRIM, STRING-LEFT-TRIM, and STRING-RIGHT-TRIM did not respect
displacement indices properly (regression at 1.0.12.23)
Cheers, Dave

It's, however, not available via sbcl.sf.net. How can I get my hands on it?

It is available on sbcl.sf.net.

Older binaries and source releases are available on the SourceForge File Releases page.


http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... up_id=1373

You have to compile it from source.

Thanks, I missed it because I only looked at sbcl's front page.

Has anyone had success building 1.0.18 on a 64bit PPC (i.e an Apple G5)? Quite a long way into the build, after redefining DESCRIBE-OBJECT the compiler drops into the LDB:

* Final object pointer 0x12e2a518, start 0x12e29ccc, end 0x12e29cf0
fatal error encountered in SBCL pid 29647:
GC invariant lost, file "gc-common.c", line 200

Welcome to LDB, a low-level debugger for the Lisp runtime environment.
ldb> backtrace
Backtrace:
make-target-2.sh: line 39: 29647 Segmentation fault ./src/runtime/sbcl --core output/cold-sbcl.core --no-sysinit --no-userinit < make-target-2-load.lisp
### execution of unset failed, exit code 139

This is a recurrent problem in other situations, but usually the compiler will build ok, using the binary 1.0.2 downloadable off http://www.sbcl.org. I know this is a known problem with the ppc64 implementation, but if other people can reproduce the problem, perhaps this will be a way to finally find and fix it.
