This morning's development snapshot (j 0.20.2.10, lisp 0.0.3.8) is up:
http://armedbear.org/j-jar.zip (just j.jar)
This snapshot fixes an editor bug in man mode. In previous versions of
j, if you used manFollowLink (Ctrl Shift G) to try to open a file
referenced on a man page, and the file turned out to be unreadable (an
example of this, if you're not root, is /etc/shadow, referenced near
the bottom of the passwd man page on a normal Debian system), you'd get
an informative message ("File is not readable"), but when you dismissed
the message box, unrecoverable paint corruption would ensue.
This bug is now fixed.
More importantly, I suspect that the underlying problem that caused
this bug is also the underlying problem behind the dissappearing lines
Since the disappearing lines bug is (for me, at least) extremely rare
in the wild and impossible to reproduce on demand, I have no proof that
it's a manifestation of the same problem. But if it is, then the
current snapshot may fix the disappearing lines bug too. Please let me
know if you encounter evidence either way.
ABCL in this snapshot fails 108 out of 16157 tests in the GCL ANSI test
suite, which is only a very tiny improvement over 0.0.3.7. But the JVM
compiler now generates somewhat better code, and real file compilation
should be Coming Soon.
Thanks for your support.
