changes in sbcl-1.0.4 relative to sbcl-1.0.3:
* new platform: experimental support for x86-64/darwin (MacOS).
* incompatible change: the thread-safe (on most platforms) getaddrinfo
and getnameinfo sockets functions are used instead of gethostbyaddr
and gethostbyname, on platforms where the newer functions are available.
As a result, the ALIASES field of HOST-ENT will always be NIL on these
* change: runtimes with embedded cores (i.e. saved with :EXECUTABLE T)
don't print the startup banner, but behave as if --noinform was passed
as a command line argument. (thanks to Kevin Reid)
* new experimental feature: added JOIN-THREAD (by NIIMI Satoshi)
* optimization: code using alien values with undeclared types is much faster.
* optimization: the compiler is now able to open code SEARCH in more cases.
* optimization: more compact typechecks on x86-64 (thanks to Lutz Euler)
* bug fix: using standardized COMMON-LISP special variables as loop
variables no longer signals bogus package lock violations. (reported
by Eric Marsden)
* bug fix: declaring local loop variables to be of a range-limited type
such as (SINGLE-FLOAT 1.0 2.0) no longer causes a compile-time error.
(reported by Andras Simon)
* bug fix: >= and <= gave wrong results when used with NaNs. (Some NaN
bugs remain on x86-64.)
* bug fix: the #= and ## reader macros now interact reasonably with
* bug fix: type-checks for function arguments were compiled using the
compiler policy settings of the wrong lexical environment (in 1.0.2
* bug fix: SHADOW accepts characters as string designators, as required
by the spec (thanks to Eric Marsden)
* bug fix: fixed GC safety issues when foreign functions are called with
non-base strings as arguments
* bug fix: more consistent error output for fatal-compiler-warnings, like
* bug fix: functions with proper names were showing up as NIL in
backtraces (reported by Edi Weitz, regression in 1.0.2)
